Re: [DMCForum] Removal of Timing Pulley

I'll get to the timing chain allen key bolts soon.  My head gaskets are 
blown and my engine will overheat due to exhaust gases entering the 
cooling system.  This is the third time the heads are coming off in the 
life of the engine (145,000 miles).  So yes, according to the engine 
manual, if you remove more than one head they recommend to replace the 
cylinder liner seals, so I figure it's about time.  While I'm down there 
I'm going to add new Rod and Main Bearings and new "Totalseal" Piston Rings.
