O.K., the ones I take out of the car are not exactly alike. One exhaust seal was green and the intake was black. But neither of the old ones had a metal outer shell.
Also, how on earth do I check the timing on this car. People say there are marks on the cam gear to align with a mark on the bearing tower. These are supposed to be on the back side of the gear right? I have a little slash ("-") mark on the bearing tower but no mark on the gear to match it. On the OUTER edge of the gear there is an arrow (">"), but shouldn't there be a mark on the gear on the inner edge to line up with the "-" mark?.
Frustrated and calling it a night.
