All this after spending over $1800. After I took possesion of the truck checked the basics compression (all cylinders at 130. Truck was skipping badly due to oil on plugs replaced plugs skip went away which won't
last long with the amount of smoke coming thru exhaust. Started to tear engine down removed valve cover, removed exhaust manifold, timing cover placed engine on all timing marks. But noticed that oil pump was not in time. May be aleast 3 teeth out will this cause my concern or due I have a ring concern.I am not sure what having oil pump timing off will cause
