Also would recommend checking your valve lash, look like a super clean truck good job man!

There some advantages to the 86, like the kick panels that are not made of carboard.

Post pics?

I love the trucks too much to tell you to kick it if you should.

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. 😂

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!

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.

Just get someone to sit in the passengers seat (or what's left of it) and shift for you.

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.

Does anyone know of a write up for a timing chain replacement on here? Information on where to set timing marks on the camshaft sprocket would be useful.


Always line up bright link on chain near camshaft with #2 hole on camshaft sprocket. The bottom only fits one way because it's keyed and there's only one mark on crankshaft sprocket. I made a video, but it's kinda long and outlines the ENTIRE process start to finish. Torque spec notes are in vid description and helpful info is present in the comments.
