I don’t have new pictures but valve lash measurements are done. I’m missing a few buckets.

Long story short.... ground my own cam buckets to fit properly after wrong order.

Tomorrow I’ll seal up the engine, do the timing and it’ll be ready for drop in.
I’ll be running the gates Kevlar/racing timing belt kit. Everything on it is stamped Japan - no worries about failed pieces.

From whom did you order the gates kit from? I've heard conflicting information when it come to what parts you get. People have received a lot of Chinese junk.

I've had this kit for a while so it could've been before they changed over. However, some people have stated that the kevlar/racing timing belt kit still uses Koyo Japan parts.

Sealed and ready to go!


I had vertically marked the studs to see how much they spin at 130ftlbs of torque.

Here’s the example. Not bad at all. Same for both sides.

Thanks man

Little motivation goes a long way. I haven’t done any work in a long time and I wanted to crank this out. No time for feelings and thinking, just bang it out
