When I had my 88 I figured I could replace the tensioner shoes every 30,000 mi for that kind of money, not a terrible job.
I can see no reason why the shaft centres would not be as per spec,
After a lot of running the compress / explosion pressures widened and shortened the block.
Can I have this bit again please mate.You make good sense, but this bit has got me baffled.
Well here’s the thing…I put the gears in after determining that there was nominally 0.004” clearance between the teeth. I was happy with that so I proceeded.But they just make too much noise for mine, there’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with them, but I think I’ll have them out.https://youtube.com/shorts/ZBFVQWB4jnw?feature=sharehttps://youtu.be/BHbm530OVhI
Ok.I felt that the crankshaft to oil pump gear mesh was a bit tight, I still had the old oil pump in situ but set out to find why.It turns out that the crank to oil pump set were tight, because the oil pump was bolted up just a touch too close to the crank gear.When installing the new pump, I LIGHTLY wedged the oil pump away from the crank gear and tightened it all up.As you see in the video, it spins nicely…!BTW…I snuck a feeler in between the teeth in the gear sets and there is 4 thou’ lash..(0.004”)I think I dodged a bullet.
That was never going to end well, lightly wedging oil pump just sounds fraught with risk,
I always wondered about resistance to turning the camshaft. Seemed to me that a spring loaded plunger pushing on the downhill side of a cam lobe would accelerate the camshaft beyond its driving crankshaft.It was only the chain tensioner that kept these two components in a somewhat proper relationship?The shifting loads imposed by the camshaft contributed to the "noise" created in a gear drive camshaft as the gears racked back and forth under the changing load.
