Well, I guess I wouldn't trust myself not to mess something up. I always wanted to learn to install tile, because I had these cool ideas about making mosaic floors in bathrooms. It's the tearing out that I have hesitated about.

The husband does the vehicle repair, though he doesn't always like to. Had to replace a water pump in one of our vehicles a month ago and it was a nightmare I guess, but we saved 600 bucks.

I wish people would post there pictures rather than linking them from a host site. It's aggravating to go through old threads and read comments about red X's. Just sayin'...

goddamnitsonofbitchshit.

the new cam sensor is talking to me. only a matter of time before i replace it again. first i have to figure out why it's eating them up. if i have to replace the dummy distributor that's going to be a major major project.

what i mean by talking is this. sounds like you've got an all night gerbil on a wheel.

dig in kero. taking up the tile takes the least amount of time per project specs usually. right now the roommate is cutting the hardy board and laying it down while i'm cooking diner. (chili with fresh Roma tomatoes, garlic, oregano and jalapeņo peppers. oh and a beer of course! beer's got water in it right?)

edit: yeah i'd rather replace the cam sensor than a water pump. know the hubby went through a lot of shit changing that out. hell i'd rather do the front brakes 3 times over than tackle a water pump. but would take the water pump over the transmission replacement. i need a new rear seal on my engine. going to have to do the tranny one more time. sigh. oh well. hindsight 20/20. note to self and all others. when doing a major major job, replace as many seals as you can while you have the access to them.

the tile replacement job just got bigger. the wall in between the bath and sink area's bottom boards are rotten. may have to tear out and replace the whole wall. hope not.

nah i say "YEEEEHHHHAAWWWW !!!" when i lose an engine on take off nah roommate is hoping we only have to replace the molding and a little bit of a 2x4. nah not gonna happen. sink/cabinets have to come out and replace the wall IMO. the base 2x4 that the wall sits on is what's rotten. then again this is on the second floor. so what else is rotten?

Naw, it's OK, I see them, I'm just thinking ahead.

If you need a rear main, it could be from excessive end play, worn thrust bearings. If the crank is walking, it could be causing the cam to walk too. Doesn't matter if the cam is chain or gear driven, unless it's got a thrust retainer, it can walk with the crank. Something to think about.

You could put a dial indicator on it, and check the end play, or drop the pan (shudder) and check the thrust bearings. If you have access to a good motor, it might be time to cut bait.

Don't let me talk you into jumping the gun. I'm just throwing out possible causes for what you've experienced, that don't make it so. There are other possibilities to explore before you give up on that motor.
