I’m working on Isaac’s Neon….out in the driveway….cool and dry day.
That’s the time to be doing gravel driveway mechanic…ing…when it’s cool and dry.
I get everything back together…to a point…and then…I read the repair manual.
This seal MUST BE INSTALLED AFTER THE CAMSHAFT.
That’s what the manual said.
When I looked at the seal, I could see that installing it before the cam had buggered it up some.
Of course, I am at a point now where it’s awkward to pull the cam and get the buggered up seal back out….reinstall the cam and put a new seal in.
But…awkward is a state that I thrive in…so…that’s what I’ll do.
No sense getting the stuff back together and having all the oil blow out in a 100 miles.
I need to try and do this close to right if I’m going to get that Neon out of the driveway.
Figuring out what to do after I’ve done it wrong isn’t the order of events I should consistently pursue.
Freaking little rubber circle.
