byrnzy Posted March 16, 2020 Report Share Posted March 16, 2020 so yesterday i finally pulled apart my L16 thats in my off road buggy to fix the blow head-gasket, everything came off fine and i cleaned everything up, put on new gaskets and reassembled. (problem 1) i cannot get the cam sprocket to lift up high enough to get it to fit onto the cam dowel. ive put the timing chain onto the sprocket and tried lifting it up onto the cam dowel but the fucker wont budge, ive heard people wedging screwdrivers inside the dowel and prying the cam sprocket on but i don't wont to fuck anything up. my hypothesis is maybe the chain tensioner has decided to fall out but i'm not sure (problem 2), i wedged a piece of garden hose down in-between the timing chain to try prevent that but again i guess the only way to find out is to remove the timing plate (problem 3) i cant get the crank pulley off to remove the timing plate. (problem 4) i think i may have fucked up the timing because i turned the crank while chain was disconnected to try see if maybe the chain stuck on something, HOWEVER, i have moved the crank back so it lines up with the marking i made and with 1st piston at TDC and i havnt moved the camshaft so i think its still good. so yeah thats where im at, any help is greatly appreciated fellas cheers Quote Link to comment
