1994 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 160K miles
Started this whole thing to replace water pump but couldn't get one of the four main studs out and opted to go the long route to remove the Timing Chain Cover so I can get at the stud. I completed that and am now in the process of putting things back together. I am at the stage of putting the distributor in and it gets to about a quarter of an inch away from being seated and will not go any further unless I tap it (moderately) with a hammer and I can pry it out with a screwdriver. I can't tell if it's resisting at the gear or the bushingh.
a. I marked the damper at the indicator to make sure I am in the same place and did not rotate the engine more than a couple of inches when I was removing the damper but relocated according to the marks.B. I did not remove any gears or oil filter adapter. C. I did replace the gasket (Federal Mogul kit) and that's all I can think of. Do you think the tight fit will work it's way out or is there anything that you can suggest I try
have the same problem?
