Ordered the first of my new parts today to fix the truck, a Beck Arnley timing chain kit, valve cover and oil pan gaskets and a new master cylinder. Soon as Norman from Oem-surplus sends me an invoice I'll have the brake booster ordered too.

The parts I listed above minus the booster from rockauto, with the 5% discount code delivered for $209 and change, same exact parts from Advance Auto Parts $348 before tax or shipping)

I have another junkyard to check supposed to have a few trucks, my truck is at my buddies shop, but he went away for the week, so hopefully as soon as the parts come in I ordered he will be able to get back onto working on it.

So today my mech. buddy started working on the truck, last week he hooked the radiator back up and filled the cooling system and performed a pressure test after letting the truck warm up , he ran it about an hour, never over heated, temp was normal, he said it never lost pressure so he determined the head and head gasket were ok.

I was thinking the oil had to be coming from the timing chain wearing through the front cover.

He drained the oil and it did look milky, removed the oil pan and got about another quart of oil out of it. He said the oil did not drain out completely through the drain plug because the broken pieces of the timing chain guide was blocking the hole.

Removed the valve cover and said the oil under the cam looked good, no signs of water mixed with it.

Remove the front cover, oil was clean at the crank area also. Removed the water pump and other than being all rusty,. probably from PO using straight water it was just water, no signs of oil

There was a wear mark on the inside of the front cover but it had not worn all the way through.

No idea where the oil and water mixed, starting to think someone put water in the oil, don't know.

He said the truck started fine and he drove it into his shop, he said it has a slight tick but it may go away.

Tomorrow he will start cleaning everything and said maybe Sunday he will have it back together and running.


The brake booster I bought looks identical to the one that is in the truck, did not see the inside of the stock one yet to compare but the under hood parts look the same.

He's going to replace the complete timing set, water pump, thermostat, oil pan and valve cover gaskets, PVC valve and possibly the oil pump.

Weird there is no sign of where oil mixed with the water, when the water pump was removed it was pure water that came out.

Have to wait a few more days and should see how it runs, he also said the truck looked clean ( he had it on his lift and was the first time either of us had seen under it, he said it's definitely a Florida truck and the PO had spent a lot on all the new parts.

went by my buddies shop today to check on the truck, he wasn't there but I checked out the truck, I told him to keep the old parts and in the bed he has the high pressure power steering line, all the timing parts, the old water pump and a pcv valve package, so all that stuff is done.

Don't know what else he has to do but shouldn't be long now hopefully !!!

Picked up my truck tonight after work, he took it easy on me labor wise, he replaced the timing set, water pump, thermostat, pcv and hose, brake booster and master cylinder, valve cover and oil pan gasket, changed the oil and filter, added antifreeze, bled the brakes, checked the AC and topped off the freon, replaced 2 exhaust gaskets,

Parts were $219, Labor $300, I tip him good so I just gave him $600

Brake booster I bought from oem-surplus couldn't be used so he had to get one from the junkyard, the one I bought the shaft on the inside that goes to the brake pedal was about 2 inch's too short.

It's got a lifter tap that goes away after a few and he told me to drive it for about 1000 miles than change the oil. Going to do the normal tune up stuff now, plugs, fuel filter, wires are good.

Lot of work still to do, speedometer still doesn't work, gas gauge wasn't working after I filled the tank but by the time I got home it was.

It drives pretty good, front end def. needs to come down it's very stiff, seems like when I'm in 5th and slow down when I go to give it gas to accelerate it seems like it doesn't want to go, I didn;t have any of the air filter intake stuff on when I drove it home, I put it back on after I got home, no idea if that has anything to do with how it ran.

I know in my old 90 sentra one day I took the intake duct off and I had to downshift from 5th to 4th to make it up a small hill, once i put the intake duct back on it was fine, guess those little things can make a difference.
