I’m down for a timing chain replacement, but find this on No.1 cylinder.. That explains the slight misfire.. I’m going to order a scope .. I guess the head gasket is gone.. Y’all look it over.. Maybe you guys see something I don’t..
Thanks for the reply, intake is the all metal, crossover is one piece with the manifold.. You are correct leaking manifold to the number one…. Should I stick with it? It is heavy lol
Anyway I was thinking head gasket, but found the water leak, on the line going to the rear heater..
I had thought it might be a head gasket.. I ordered a small inspection camera to have a look.. No1 was full of carbon gunk, due to the misfire.. All other cylinders look good..
Been taking a break on the project, but I thought I would look down the oil filler with the camera.. I wish I hadn’t done it.. Saw some shiny small pieces of metal.. Probably have a follower bearing going , but the engine wasn’t tapping excessive..
I got to get the harness off the engine.. Hard for me to get back there at that mounting point, then I can take the valve cover off to see what’s going on
Thanks a bunch, really appreciate the advice
