sadly I haven't pulled it down yet. I've been busy with flood season here. When the dust settles I'll check it out and keep you posted!

Getting the Wheeling Fever
Ok so I'm a procrastinator. With snow on the horizon am getting back to business.
Things dont look good. I pulled the front case to find the silent shaft sprocket toothless but both shafts and oil pump spin smooth as silk. I can rock the top end a little, but the crank spins VERY stiffly with a pipe. I'm pulling the pan now to check further bottom end damage.
I'm really confused as to how I spun the sprocket. all guides look good and tension was up when I took it apart.
I'm guessing once the silent sprocket dies, so does the oil pressure and a bearing or two will follow...
Anybody got a line on another 2.6??
Sheldon

update: took caps off. all were cooked and #2 rod bearing was welded on good. So yes, gonna have to find another 2.6....... rare as Hens teeth in these parts

Thanks I appreciate it. I think I'm gonna do a rebuild. my block is ok, need new crank. Rock auto is gonna love me. Also I live right across a river from Michigan so I get my rock auto sent there and pick it up. The crank is the only pricey part when you add in the core charge.

I'm still puzzled how it happened though. no teeth on the balance chain sprocket on the crank but both balance shafts and oil pump spin. and all my bearings are scrubbed. How did I lose teeth? It seemed to be up snug on the adjuster. Not that it matters much now lol.

any suggestions on the rebuild are helpful. ie copper head gasket and ARP studs etc.

Thanks
Sheldon
