Default Re: top engine mount stripped alum engine front

I'm tempted to tell you to replace the timing chain while your at it. You're going to have to do most of the work it takes to do it. The first place everyone gets stuck is getting the bolt out of the end of the crankshaft. This thread has some ways to do that.

Make sure you get all the bolts out of the front cover. There are a couple in the center that are usually hidden in grease. After you get all the bolts out, you have to pry the cover off. It doesn't have a gasket just RTV. When you are ready to go back on, do a couple dry (no RTV) runs with the cover so you know how to get it on with the RTV intact.
There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.
