that little arrow that is cast into the back plate at 12 oclock behind the cam gear should be lined up with a mark between the teeth when the piston is at TDC the crank shaft mark is in line with the keyway in the shaft and will line up with a make ( pointer )in the case behind the bottom gear
to make it easy there should be a small notch in the slinger behind the gear
it is an intereference engine so make sure that the tappet adjustments are let right of so that when turning the cam or crank , the valves will not move and bend on the pistons
the length of the tension spring should be 2.52 " overall length and if not --replace the spring
replace the tension pulley as well
on the long side of the belt opposite the tension pulley apply a load of 22 lbs ( spring balance pulling on the belt) and a deflection of .44-.51" will indicate the correct tension on the belt
The only door bushings I am aware of are the ones on the hinge pins. Correct? If not, please clarify what you mean.
New pins come with new bushings, and the hinges are welded on so the pins are pretty much the only items replaceable. Not a fun job - because of the door stop springs you will need a spring compressor, and you will also need a special tool to drive out the old pins. However, both are available from a parts store or Amazon.
Just open the door and support it from the bottom, and then go for it, one pin at a time - for the upper pin, compress and remove the small spring, drive out the old pin, drive in the new pin and put the spring back. No spring on the bottom hinge - just replace the pin.
shoe breaks are tricky but can be a little easier with practice and the right tools; What you;ll nned: Spring pliers Shoe hold down tool Diagonal side cutters. Needle nose pliers Flathead screw driver.
this project is easy so long as you can remember how the parts go back together.
!. remove brake drum. 2. see how the brakes fit together. REMEMBER HOW THE BRAKE BAR GOES BACK IN. IT ONLY WORKS CORRECTLY ONE WAY!
the brake bar is the metal piece that goes between the brake shoes. 3. remove the brake shoe springs with the spring pliers. *THE BRAKES HOW HIGH POWERED SPRINGS AND SHOULD BE HANDLED CAREFULLY* 4. remove the brake shoes with the spring tool. 5. clean parts thoroughly with brake part cleaner. (i like spraying it into a glass jar and shaking it a little) you can use a wire wheel to brush to clean the harder material. then take some brake cleaner and spray down the backing plate and remove any and all grease and old brake material. 6. using brake grease, dab a small amount on the adjuster and the small oval shaped pads on the backing plate, *use a SMALL AMOUNT* less then a finger nail in size. 7. reassembly, now compare the shoes and take note that there are 2 long and 2 short shoes. thte larger shoes go in the front and the smaller go to the rear of the vehicle. set the pairs aside so you do not confuse them. next a fix the shoes to the backing plate and then set the adjuster to the lowest setting, (shortest). and set the brake bar in place then set the springs (the longer springs) 8. adjusting the shoes. slip the drum on the hub and spin the brake, it should feel like it has a bit of drag. keep slipping the drum on and off making adjustments to the adjuster till the drum either is adjusted correctly or you cannot remove it, if you need to adjust the brake further there is an access in the backing plate for further adjustment.
If you have an LS, you have coil over shocks,not struts
You remove them
Then take the coil over, down the street, to a
local repair shop ,who will swap out the springs for you
They are too small a dia, to play with individual spring
Make sure the new shocks are correct
Mine is a Sport with different set up
They are correct. There is a groved ring and spring between your steering wheel and colum. It allows electrical connection to your cruise buttons and air bag. Those springs wear out and no connection can be made. Its called a clock spring. Make sure if you try to replace it your self to take care around the air bag as you could inaverdlty set it off.
Sounds as if you have had work done before. If the head covers were off before, then its agood likelyhood the spring could of come right out of someones pocket as they working on it. Things can slide down into the journel through the oil ports. You would be surprised to find just how many thing I have found from mechanics working on my engines of the past. Small washers and even small bolts can fall into the pan. This is why there is a pan in the first place to catch stuff. But if the engine has never been opened, then we are talking a whole other story. small smog values have small springs in them. One of these could of come apart and fall into oil passages. Some are large enough to pass small parts. If your engins is running rough its a good bet that one of the smog controllers came apart. Check egr value, its small enough to be suspected. It has a small spring inside of it. New ones are under 12.00 bucks. So I'd look there first.
