Find a shop that can rebuild yours? Maybe the guts of the RH and LH versions are the same?

It has been a while, but I likely had a load leveler installed. Lowered the engine in, then aligned it in all ways. Push/pull back, swear some, keep trying. And rotate the block a little to get...

If the EGR's tube is frozen and strips, it too. The one I mentioned, though, comes up from the exhaust's big down pipe(s).

P.S. While the engine is out, this is _the time_ to replace that little exhaust tube. A PITA (lots of PB Blaster soaks first) to get the nut loose from the main exhaust, and I think it was RockAuto...

Good!


Just checking ... you did remove the radiator, correct? {But I was able to leave the sealed AC system, including evaporator, in place.}

If having starting or charging problems, I recommend adding an extra ground wire directly from the battery's negative terminal to some cooler metal on the engine.

And the vacuum inside the engine will cause the atmosphere to press down on the valve cover (and gasket).


Too tight bolts also squeezes out/cracks/etc. the gasket, causing it to potentially fail.

A good chance a rod or two were bent, or worse. I'd not attempt an in-field repair, and get the vehicle into its home workshop/garage somehow -- rent a U-Haul truck and tow dolly?

Are you sure it is the fuel pump? E.g., how clean is your air filter?


Also do a block test to check the head gasket, etc.

If you are sure that the cam-timing is correct, double check the ignition timing.
