Replaced the camshaft seal and distributor O-rings (and timing belt) today. All stiff as plastic, no wonder it leaks! Even got the timing right back. Only surprise was when the distributor housing came off a bunch of oil spilled out..after I wiped it all down to keep dirt out..oh well. Now for the rear tranny seal and the driveway should be dry again [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
The pulleys rubbed through the plastic timing gear cover..is this normal?
Glad you got it done . I hate oil leaks , like a dog pissin on yer car , it's just bad . Those covers fit so close to the pulleys it's a wonder they last as long as they do . I think the new covers are only like $30 or so , be sure to get a new dust seal with it .
