Spent the weekend working around this thing. Managed to get most of the removable stuff off the front/top/sides of the engine and soaked overnight to break up the caked-on crud. I made a day of pressure-washing and managed to get these things looking nice and shiny again.

The crank pulley is free, now I just need to continue the teardown. This has gone from a light refresh with a couple replaced gaskets to a full-on OEM gasket set replace everything that touches liquid kind of job. New water and oil pumps, timing belt kit and starter will be on order as well. As long as we’re going there, no reason not to replace the valve stem seals too right? Head gaskets and studs? Stopping just short of a rebuild seems logical, but might as well take a look at the bearings while I have the pan off…
