Accessing the timing cover: what do/don't you HAVE to remove? (OHV)
My truck (4.0 OHV) has the timing cover gasket leak. I'm putting in a new water pump when I change the timing gasket. I know removing the radiator gives you alot of room to work.
People mention removing the harmonic balancer and the crank pulley. Is this REQUIRED or optional for accessing the timing cover? Ive heard that both the balancer and CP can be a bitch.
If its required then I will get a new crank seal for good measure.
If removing the balancer is required, does anyone have the part number for the OEM torque to yield bolt? And what's the torque spec on it?
