I just got the email from Mik telling me he will be shipping my stuff probrobly this week. This will be my first time reassembling a motor while I'm this deep into it.
I need to know anything a noob to this might not know. Aka, little stuff that the Haynes manual doesn't tell you.
Any special things I need to do. Do I need to do anything special with any of the gaskets(I have heard the China Wall and Lower Intake gaskets dont mesh perfectly. Someone told me I might have to grease a couple gaskets? Does that make any sense?
What about the lifters, do i have to fill them with any kind of fluid(I have heard tranny fluid will relube them)
Do I have to prime any pumps? Aka Oil and water pumps.
And that damn Timing Chain Tensioner will not budge when I try to cock it. I have already removed the chain and the thing won't move up. Is there a special trick to get it up?
Thanks for helping me, the noob to this, out. I will reward you with burnout videos if all goes well.
