Maybe this would be a better place to solicit my most burning question..
2005 Tacoma 4x4 2.7 - Manual Transmission
I am changing my Timing Chain and also addressing a timing cover leak at the moment.
I have pulled all bolts out of cover and thought I was ready to split the case.. am now realizing that I might have to pull Oil pan assemblies and Transmission, clutch plate, flywheel, and exhaust, and possibly many more according to FSM.
Was going to try and go against the FSM reccomendation (which is pull everything including the engine assembly (AKA MOTOR) ) and just pull off timing chain cover and change internals while its in the truck.
Anyone know the answer to this? I thought I was ready to split the cover until I noticed that the FSM might indeed know more than I.
I am documenting my procedure here:
Thanks in advance for any one that has an answer for me. Preferably one I want to hear?? < I was hoping that I could pull just the cover and a few bolts that bolt to the Oil Pan assembly..... :[ :| happyhappyjoyjoy
