I had a leak at the timing chain cover and went ahead and changed the chain, and correctly got the dots lined up. I had to reinstall the balancer to 130ftlbs, until I could get the tool to torque it higher -180. It started up and ran fine. I got a bigger torque wrench and the balancer install tool also and tightened it in more. Then tried to get torque on crank bolt over the 130 but, balancer turned on me some even with bolts in and long bar against frame. I used a quick impact gun from there. I turned the balancer clockwise a few turns back to the TDC mark.
At earlier first start up, after timing cover an all were back on and 135ftlb on balancer, oil was dripping at torn pan gasket. That oil pan gasket got torn where the timing chain cover is at.
I had to jack up the motor, take off the motor supports and raise it more, pull the starter, take off the transmission supports, and overdrive supports to raise it more, and get into my oil pan better, and get the piece of pan gasket that was in bottom. (This pan can't fully come out without pulling engine) New oil pan gasket installed. I noticed the starter reinstall was a bit tight, but it fit in okay.
I bumped the motor a few times, then that vroom noise, like started didn't engage.
Pulled starter it tested okay, but i, put another in that tested good.
I recharged the battery and turned it over.
This time the starter had the normal turnover sound, then the engaged sound but once it engaged it didn't sound like a normal run-on engine low pitch noise and not that regular running sound. I didn't just let it continue, and I quickly turned it off.
A little while ago I slightly turned the starter over with the key, it had the normal turnover sound, and turned it off, and then looked at balancer and it is turning.
