Spun balance shaft bearing now I need to remove the chain that drives the balancers. I dont want to drop the engine so this will be done in the car. My plan is to remove all motor accessories around the timing cover like ac, ps, alternator, fan and rad assembly to gain access.
The problem I see is the two oil pickup bolts that I need to remove in order to take the timing cover out. My truck is a 4x4 so it has the front drive components obstructing the oil pan. Ill be dropping the oil pan and hopefully that will give me enough room.
Any potential obstacles Im not seeing?
