    I am trying to get the engine cleaned but I want to take as little apart as I can. Two reasons, one to spend less on gaskets if I don't need to and second if it's not broke or leaking then I would like to leave it alone. That being said, I have read that the cooling pipe can leak easy, should I leave it and clean paint around it or is it worth taking off and just get the o ring. Thoughts?

    do the timing chain check first at the age and mileage on that motor it probably needs a triple bypass

    which includes a mech seal that looks like its been leaking anyways

    as you are intending to sell this make sure you touch the bases that buyers are going to check

    Yes as you expected, bad timing chain. Had to crack the case, guess I am going to do the triple bypass that you mentioned. Not sure what the is, but I don't have a choice. I will have to order some parts and gasket set now . . . Dang there goes the budget. Not sure where to go from here, I think the next part will be to get the flywheel off and go after the chain. What all should I replace now that I am at this level.
