Yeah, get the regular JB-Weld for this project. My experience with the quick-set hasn't been all that good. Like padgett said, it'* worth the wait. Because once that **** sets, it'* set.

Yes, the timing chain needs to be removed.

There are two hash marks on the sprockets. You must line them up when putting the sprockets back on. I'd suggest replacing the timing chain while you are there. It isn't all that expensive, but get a name brand one, not a cheapie. Also, make sure it'* for a 90/91, because IIRC, those are the years with the better timing chain. Something makes them better.. but I can't remember what exactly.

Read my page. The factory way is to pull the timing chain. My way you just pull the serpentine belt (no bolts), the water pump pully (four bolts) and the cam sensor (1 bolt).

Sounds like you need to print out my web page and take it to someone a bit more mechanically experienced.

So im starting to takner apart.. and I cant seem to get any access from the wheel well OR the top. I just have no access at all... Im starting to think the problem is more serious as well..
