Yea I understood what you meant. If I paint the centers id rather do all one color or just leave it all polished.

So all of the timing components have been installed. Timing cover, new factory Harmonic Balancer, factory oil pump installed.



Replaced this hose because when I removed one end during repair I head a bunch of crunching sounds so figured it was old and needed to be replaced.



Replaced the pcv valve because it looked terrible. Ill need to look this up as I have no idea what the function of this valve is.



Getting closer. Would be nice to start her up on Friday.

Went to install distributor last night noticed the half D shape drive gear was not exactly where it was when I removed it. When the distributor is installed the rotor is pointing slightly counterclockwise of Cyl 1 per the instructions I am following. Is this crucial? Everything inside timing said I was TDC but for some reason the distributor is just a bit off. Do I need to pull the oil pump and correct this?

I don't know about the KA24e engine. Ask Alabama or SciFi Luver.

Pulled the oil pump today and got it right! I had the wife keep an eye on it from u top while re-installed the pump and were all good. Replaced the sway bar bushings with prothane bushings. I spent some more time on the wheels and forgot to pull out the camera.

Goal would be to start it on Monday!

A little progress last night. Was gonna spend a bunch of time cleaning the valve cover to get it powder coated but I'm tired of this thing being in the garage so I just put it back on grease and all. A little bummed because looks like the threads on the head for one of the bolts are stripped. Makes no sense really because it never got tight enough to over tighten, it just spins and spins. Double checked to make sure it was going in and it was.. whatever. I guess I will have to tap it for a heli-coil.

I also replaced this temp sensor because nothing else has helped the temp gauge on the cluster work properly. Well see when I start her up.





Cleaned up the oil pan finally to remove old RTV and get all the plastic pieces of the old chain guide out. Question: Gasket? Yes or No? If Yes, go I RTV the oil pan ad leave cork side that touches block bare so its easy to remove in the future? Or RTV both sides?



Also found another leak in the power steering system. Looks like this may jsut be the main source of all the oil under the truck. Kind of annoyed, as its the rubber and metal hose. Which is probably more expensive, and is it pressurized?



Also spent more time on the wheels. When I was sanding the corrosion I noticed there was actually clear coat on the lip, so I went to town again with the aircraft remover to remove it all. Just need to borrow a variable speed polisher so I can polish these up. I received the hub rings in the mail today, so once they are polished I am ready to mount tires and see how they look.



Goal was Monday to have it running but didn't happen. Its ok. Would be nice to have it for Friday but who knows. There was so much oil on the alternator, I decided to remove it and now I am looking at higher output options.

Yes I will probably go this route. Just want to get it running. But after today... Thats not happening soon..

First, the hub rings I ordered do not fit. The rear hubs are so short these ones do not fit because they have this chamfer.





Then... This happened..



FUCK

The PS hose from the pump is pressurized (when the engine is running). The hose/s that attach with hose clamps are not pressurized.

is the center bore bigger than oem or something requiring you to use the rings? i have never used hub rings on any wheels, just made sure the lugs were seated good before i put the vehicle on the ground and never had any issues.
