This is a follow up to the broken top chain rail on a 87 16V. Finally got the pan loose so I can attempt to get the front chain cover off. M.B. Doc,thanks for the recommendation of replacing the lower guides too. So far, eleven pieces of rail in the pan. By far this car is the most challanging to work on. What a pain in the ass to get the power steering/AC bracket off!!!!
The question of the hour is... What is the best way to raise the motor to remove the oil pan? Can you support it with a floor jack or do I need to rent an engine hoist? Anything else to replace while I have it this far apart? I don`t want to do this again any time soon!
As always any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
