Well, after finally figuring the reason I wasn't getting spark was because I had a broken timing chain on my 88 Pickup w/22RE! Looking for someone that might be able to help($$$) me install a new timing chain. I'm up on the lake in St. Mary's............any assistance would be appreciated.

Probably this weekend or whatever is convienent for someone. I already have started doing some of the initial part removal. Don't plan on taking the head off..........No big hurry, but would like to get it running....

you don't need to pull the head or the oil pan, just grill, radiator, fan, i think i pulled the oil pump, but not the water pump (or was it the other way around?). all the power steering/alternator crap. the front cover hopefully will pop out from between the oil pan and head. there's one bolt that you have to get out from under the valve cover in the front galley where the upper gear is. and, i think at least one on the right side back of the cover and two or three on the left side back.

Sounds like you went in from the front. I was going to try taking the skid plate, radiator shroud, and fan off, but try to keep the radiator on going from the bottom. However, you probably have better access doing it your way. Did you buy the complete kit with cover for yours and where did you buy yours?

i just got the gasket and chain kit from napa warehouse. easier to pull rad, cause then you can get in with an air gun and get the crank pulley off.

I have some people saying I should pull the head and look for bent valves. This truck was actually parked and idling at the time it broke. What are your thoughts?

I'm Stuck! Seems I've got everything off, and all the bolts out. Try tugging at it with no luck. Any advice getting that timing cover off????????
