One time is better than none. I personally would make a tab for the dowel pin and loctite red the bolts and sleep better having done it.Really interesting info, guys!
How often should we pull the front acc cover off and inspect this stuff?
Is there a sticky/FAQ anywhere that shows you what you should be looking for?
No, you need to do what SDSTRIPER mentions on post #13 above yours. I even locktite my oil pump bolts. Remember there is a hidden bolt under the cam gear that also needs locktite. You need to bar the engine to get to a opening in the cam gear to see it.Is it as simple as pulling the front cover off and making sure everything is good?
Shouldn't take more than a few hours?
Thanks, yeah....I knew I would be securing fasteners once inside,No, you need to do what SDSTRIPER mentions on post #13 above yours.
Yup, thats it. Just rotate engine to get cam gear to openings to get bolt under gear. Also dont forget to do the KDP mod. Tab works well and is quick and forever with red thread locker.Thanks, yeah....I knew I would be securing fasteners once inside,
I was just looking for other info,
like: "the cam gear needs to come off" or something along those lines.
If all I need to do is unbolt the cover, remove every bolt I see and clean them (more or less!) and then re-install with loctite, it will be cheap insurance for sure.
