Hey I meant to send you a message yesterday but I got so busy in finalizing the work I needed to do to the Raider last night that I was out in the garage until about 10:00pm last night. I sent you the tool and it is Guaranteed Delivery by Thursday. You should be getting it before the weekend kicks off. I lost the receipt with the tracking number or I would provide it. If I find it in the next hour or so I'll send it to you.

No problem man.

Question: I Noticed that the coolant passages in the block and heads are sort of oval and the gasket is round, covering most of the passage. Also noticed that because of this the head gasket kinda deteriorates in that same section. Is there a gasket that matches the passages on the block and heads?

Javy, I know what you mean. I wondered about that as well. I went with the FelPro set that was recommended on their web site. I haven't had any problems with it over the past 12 months. I don't know if there is a set of gaskets that fit better or not. I wouldn't be too concerned about it. How long have you ran that head on the engine with that gasket?

Javi, it looks from the pics that there are perforations in the proper oval shapes on that gasket. Are you sure you're not supposed to punch them out?

If you notice I circled some, the shape of the gasket and the head don't match. I thought the same thing, if I should punch hem to he head's shape or is it ok to leave them like that.

Jay, I got the tool, I am studying it to see how it works. Today is a beautiful Saturday in the good ol'south so I will be working on the truck soon.

I am thinking on taking a bit of time longer to paint and polish a couple of things under the hood. This is crazy but thinking on painting the intake manifold, red <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> crazy??? Ha ha ha
I am also going to redo the plastic piping that covers the fuel injectors wires it is brittle and disintegrating.

Oh, one question: I found the timing belt way too easy to slide out, is it supposed to have a bit more of tension on it? Can o adjust it? Should I?

Will have my pc in the garage together with some good Latin tunes and the little fridge with good beer so I will be posting the good as I go.

You may want to consider self wrapping conduit. It works well at high operating temperatures. You can find it cheap by the foot at Fry's and places that sell computer wiring like PCH Cables in Oregon. They sell 1/2" for $1.08 per foot and ship anywhere for cheap. I'm sure you can find it locally.

Yes, you should adjust it. Make sure the little spring that connects from the post on the water pump to the tensioner arm is there. Sometimes they break. It will pull the right tension on the tensioner pulley, then torque down the pulley. That is how you adjust the tension. Sometime I pull a little extra tension with a big screw driver on the back side of that pulley. Here is a link to Autozone's timing component kit. .

Jay,
Wow I have been busy. Couldn't work on it last weekend end but I'm working on it as we speak.

LOL, I had to remove a stud that was broken on the exhaust manifold and I broke a bolt of the rocker arms bolt, this one I have to find.

The other thing is, once I torque the heads I don't want to remove the valve covers again to do the warm torque, common that is a pain in the <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/butwiggle.gif" alt="" /> as it is to remove. Did you do that warm torque or did you torque them a bit more to compensate?

Also, I painted the intake oh you got to see how it looks but I won't post pictures until installed <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Contacted a friend of mine who is the best engine builder I know back home and he advised to just do the cold torque and to add 5lbs.

Mounting this thing back but can only work on weekends as I do not have enough time during the week. I think I am taking Friday off so I can finish it.

Oh, during the disassembly process I found a broken sensor, the one on top and next to the thermostat housing, I believe is for the cooling fan, and it cost about $47 so I'll see if I can fix it just as I did with one of the sensors in the transfer case.
