Also if you put your socket driver on a 27 mil and then put that on the front lower pully and turn the starter it comes off because the socket driver braces against the framerail and it breaks it loose. Also if, when assembling or disassembling, you need to remove the cam sprocket then place a long socket extension in the cam sprocket hole and use your breaker bar to loosen bolt that holds cam sprocket on, remove this AFTER Timing chain tensioner is removed. If using the socket extension method to remove cam sprocket ensure that you place a rag between extension and head or you will scuff it.

Thank you! Removing the timing chain when you have the water pump off seems fairly straight forward; I just need to make sure that the engine is TDC Cyl. #1, pull the timing cover, mark the chain and sprocket, and release the tensioner, correct? Also, this is a non-interference motor, correct?

If the chain falls off the pistons and valves hit each other.

Only turn it a little bit with chain off, but you will put it at TDC for head gasket anyways. Make sure that you replace chain and sprockets too, because the chains stretch.

Yeah, I have a timing kit on it's way; I am taking the head off today so that I can take it to my guy to make sure it's leveled and to replace the valve seals

Sounds like you've got a pretty good handle on things!

I'm hoping so!! My nickname is struggles so you never really know. Sometimes I do well, other times it takes me 20 minutes to remove a hose. Ya never know which one you're gonna get. They didn't teach me anything about cars in my accounting classes  :rofl:

Hey those lower rad hoses are really awful to remove, now I just pull the radiator and leave the hose on then replace hose outside of car. 😂

You are correct about the bottom radiator hose on the 720.
