:Start Day 3:
1. Home from class at 1pm, Take a good look at everything. Wonder how the car ran with that timing chain, Old chain w/ tensioner 27.5* of slop. New chain w/o tensioner 4* slop. I expect good results.
2. Line up timing marks, remove cam bolt and tensioner. Slide chain off. Break cam magnet. Go buy new cam magnet. Install Cam magnet to cam sproket and align sprockets in chain. Slide chain onto crank then cam, find that cam was not perfectly aligned, Wobble things til it fits. Install tensioner.
3. Look at pile of removed parts and decide those are no going back on looking like that. Find can of degreaser. Spend rest of evening cleaning mating surfaces and removing gunk.
:End Day 3:

I had to triple check it, It was quite suprising.

:Begin Day 4:
1. Clean front of block.
2. Slide front cover onto Heater Outlet Pipe then onto alignment pins. Bolt on.
3. Install Crankshaft Sensor.
4. Snap on Crankshaft Sensor Shield.
5. Install and torque Harmonic Balancer.
6. Install Lower Radiator Hose.
7. Install Water Pump and Pulley.
8. Attach plugs for Cam and Crank sensors.
9. Check Conn. Rod play, Find it to be minimal. Be happy.
10. Install Oil Pan. This is extremely easy with the Fel-Pro kit, They have these little plastice peices you screw in at the corners, Then simply slide the gasket and pan up onto them and put the bolts in, Then remove the pegs and put the last four bolts in. It'* well worth twice what I paid for it.
11. Install Flywheel Cover. This is a b****, There is no easy way.
12. Get called in to work.
13. Talk to JasonMN, Realize you forgot to take a single picture of the engine opened up.
:End Day 4:

Now all I have left is filling the fluids, installing the two mounts, closing up the wheel wells and testing it, Should be able to do that this evening. Hopefully.

:Begin Day 5:
1. Install Flywheel cover.
2. Install Torque Axis Mount.
3. Install Front Transmission Mount.
4. Fill oil.
5. Fill coolant.
6. Double check everything.
7. Let it sit for a while so you can think.
8. Nervously crank it over... Hook up the battery... Crank it... IT RUNS!!!!
9. Do a dance.
10. Listen to it run...
11. Burp the coolant.
12. Listen to it run.
13. Give it a little rev.. It sounds great.
14. Listen to it run.

Damn it started out smooth. But now it'* got a bit of a lope and a reoccuring DTC 18 Crank/Cam Fault. I shot and ohmed the wires under the hood. Now just to shoot them under the dash and hope it'* a loose connection. May have to whip out the o-scope.

Now i've got a DTC 18 & 39 along with bogging under load. TPS over 5% is like coasting. Cold weather/warm engine runs good, cold weather/cold engine is very bad, warm weather/cold engine okay, warm weather/warm engine horrible. Suspect coils/ICM or plugs ruined by previous mechanical condition. Wiring underhood shoots good. Will '87 coils swap and work for testing?

47.5 hours work and 17.5 hours school in the next five days. Leaves 55 hours for sleeping, grooming and travel. I'll try to come around.
