Sure chop... I can take you for a ride. No borrowing though, sorry. LOL
Cams are in, new t-stat assembly is in, IMRC motor is out, and I did a little more cleaning here and there in the engine bay while things were out. I mocked up the cam gears, but I need to pick up some sealant for the VCT solenoid bracket/cams cap before I can install it and get this timing BS done.
On the plus side, I finally figured out where the TDC pin goes (circled in blue), no thanks to the shop manual's diagram, which blows donkey balls.
And a quick peek at the valve cover.
