im leaning more towards the woodruff key being broken, due to improper installation.


i will have to strip the front down and have a look! JOY!


ill post more pics as i take stuff apart, i did notice that the gear on the oil pump/dizzy shaft was quite worn, i imagine that it could potentially slip, either way i think that some disassembly will enlighten me on my problem. i hope my crank is ok =]


thank you for your replies.

you didnt read my post carefully, i turned the engine over fully, 360* on cam. if you notice its really close to the proper orientation but for some reason is shifted?

hey all, thanks for your helpful replies.


i took my oil pump out and reclocked it for the proper position of the reverse d on the dizzy shaft. everything looked right and at TDC my rotor lined up with the #1 cyl plug wire on the cap.


here is the strange thing, after i crank it over one full rotation (360 on cam) it no longer lines up. i took the oil pump out twice and reclocked it but everytime it would shift after i would turn the motor by hand or cranked it with my started.







cam position




crank position




dizzy position after one rotation.


???? any ideas?

Cab/Chassis start with E

im not sure what you mean mike


Being that they are Bilstein shocks...they are going to probably be really stiff and possibly too long for your application.
Very good chance they came off a 4x4/Nismo Off-Road or a PreRunner.

Again, brand new KYB Gas A Just shocks can be had cheaper than those used ones you posted.

alright, thanks for the advice. my rear end is already really stiff, maybe because of the HD springs, maybe blown struts, ill buy some new KYB gas shocks and report back.
