Let The Engine Strip Down Commence
So start taking the main crankshaft pulley with the the timing belt and cam gears. Then the intake manifold with the cam covers after with the cams. By the time you know it the head is off and it's looking like this

Engine oil pan off and sitting on the ground, then the pic on the engine
Main lower bearing brace removed with all the baffling
And finally got all the pistons out sitting pretty on the bench
So another day done with everything almost everything dis-assembled. All that's gotta be done is cleaning and take a closer look at my front diff
