It'* a shame to need to go inside when it'* so young. That'* like performing surgery on a child.
That'* not young based on wear and tear over that many miles. No grandma driving there. :P

I rebuilt the T/A engine with 90,000 miles and it needed it.

.......only 30 K on the SSEi and it won't be long......

110K when you consider how many he'* put on is low. Which explains why his chain didn't look like mine. The gears though..that'* impressive

I beat on this car. I treat it well from a maintenance standpoint, but when driving, I can be quite demanding.

I've driven with both Bill'* and I can attest to it being very difficult to tell who drives their car harder.

I still disagree about 110,000 miles or 170,000 km not being a lot of miles.......but that'* coming from a guy who drives a 1988 Jeep with 170,000 km with the original engine that has never even had it'* valve cover removed.

The 1979 Birds on the otherhand have 90,000 miles and have been rebuilt once....or twice......and another one will be done to the Formula next year.
You should have seen how loose the timing chain was on the T/A. No tensioner on that bad boy.

Finished assembling the nosedrive today. Bearings and new seal are pressed in.

Did some work on the timing chain cover today also. Cleaned and painted. Picked up my new oil pressure sensor also. My old sensor was spiking to 120psi on a cold engine, but read fine once warmed up.

Timing chain and gears are installed, just need to 'paint' them with a little oil and reinstall the timing cover, water pump, new torque-axis mount, and harmonic balancer. All that probably tomorrow. Then the heads go back on.

Painting makes it easier to see any leaks that may occur, and it also helps make it easier to clean in the future.

Because I don't work on my car when the kids are here unless absolutely necessary. They come first.

But I am up early this morning.

Tomorrow, I get to re-loom this harness and install the new oil pressure sensor:

Then hook up the oil pressure sensor, cam sensor, and crank sensor, then re-install the dust cover for the HB:

The HB may go back on tomorrow too.

Here'* the current state of affairs (part of the wiring harness is removed):




And then the new torque-axis mount can go back on:
