Timing Chain removal

Postby griff364 [OP] » Mar 24 2013, 1:57am

Do I really need to remove the oil pump to get the timing chain tensioner off so that I can get my cam sprocket removed?

The Haynes manual process is to remove the oil pan in order to removed the oil feed line going to the oil pump, then remove the oil pump in order to remove the timing belt tensioner. All that so I can remove the chain, sprocket, and then the cam.

Has anyone removed the timing chain without removing the oil pump?

Here's a pic of what I'm talking about.

If it were me, I'd drop the pan and do it right. Edit: Meaning by the book.

You're probably right. Is it a pain with that transfer case right there?

I don't think it will be that bad. You should just have to drop the front differential, or, since you have the top of the engine off you should be able to raise the engine enough to get the pan out without dropping the axle.

I've just found that a lot of times shortcuts are usually not that short.
