The belt tensioner will take up the slack so the belt will be tight, but that's not the problem. The cam timing will always be retarded when you bring the cam down closer to the crank. There are a...

If you want to get the intermediate/auxiliary shaft set properly with the lower timing cover still on(and you really should), take off your distributor cap. With the crank and cam set to TDC, there...

Yeah, when I measured the "rock", I really smooshed the pistons up and down on the sides as much as I could just to see the worst case scenario. If I average it out I get basically .006" proud of the...

Forget the compression test. Get a leakdown tester. You don't want to crank that thing over on the stand, wobbling around, maybe oil pressure, maybe not. A leakdown tester puts compressed air into...

Can't remember if your car has an airbox thermostat, but if it does it could be routing hot air to the Maf all the time. So if you have one, check it or ditch it.

I did the blue loctite thing a year ago and it is holding fine. Just make sure you get it nice and tight the first time. Use a proper gland nut spanner or big pipe wrench.
