Hi everyone, I am about to embark in the task of replacing the timing chain aluminum housing, and every other component related. It all started with an oil leak, which according to my mechanic is caused by chain slack having damaged the cover. No coolant mixing with oil, just an unexplained leak. Upon starting, the engine had been making a sort of rattle that quickly faded away as oil pressure built. So, now that the problem has been identified, parts bought and most of the "in the way parts" removed I am about ready to start removing the chain cover. My mechanic didn't want to do the job...guessing he is wealthy enough to turn away time consuming jobs. I need to find a good video or book showing how to do all this disassembling and reassembling, hopefully someone here knows of a link or source. The truck is a 1993 4x4 deluxe Pickup. I also like to check and clean up the oil pan and pump filtering for any debris before reinstalling, was told I needed to remove the front axle. I am not a mechanic, but do have access to tools and know how to use them. I have done brakes, replaced struts and most steering components both on 1985 Honda and 1997 4Runner. Any tips related to the task at hand would be welcomed. Thanks, Jay
