Now I just need to find time to put it back together.
Hope I remember where all the bolts go

Any bolt left over is more power via weight reduction.

All kidding aside, no matter how careful I am and how precise I label everything, I darn near always have one or two random fasteners left over that makes me think, "where the heck do you go??!".

I usually have problems with my tools. I would put down a wrench or socket and then spend like 2 hours looking for where I put it.
I wish I could put that in my signature.

Story of my dang life! Glad your getting it all back together. Sounds like you are like me and enjoy going thru your rig and knowing every nut and bolt. Good luck with it. The Initial startup is always the most intense for me.

While cleaning up the mating surfaces for the oil pan I saw the timing chain and it has way too much play. I am surprised It did not jump a tooth.
Well back to ordering parts. Timing chain and 12 pushrods on order from Summit.

I'd buy the sprockets as well. They aren't too expensive and pair well with a new chain.

I inspected the sprockets today and they have virtually no wear on them. So I opted not to order them.

Front cover bolts out

When I removed the timing chain cover the guide was broken.
Lucky that is on order already.
I am also waiting for timing cover gaskets and seal.

Is that the doorman water pipe for the heater hose? I ordered one when I did my water pump and it was too short. Put my old rusty one back on and it fit perfectly.
