Yes, you hacve to start at the front taking the belts off to get to the back one. And, while you have two belts there and might be tempted to say "I only need one", when that one lets go it is likely...

Gas in the oil could be by flooding the intake and running past the rings. That is really hard on cylinder walls as the oil gets washed off of them. Or, it can be via the pump's diaphragm, as Cliff...

I think you are right. Placing another piece of plastic over the one on the diesel bezel would put it out close to the edge of the raised lip. But my plan places it basically the same depth as the...

I had to heat the case to get it out, but that apparently was due to corrosion. It now is a nice slip fit and you can hear it bottom in the case, which is confirmed with measurements.

As for the...

Wikipedia says "Fuel injection and other changes in 1987 pushed output up to 145 hp (108 kW) with 8.8:1 compression." Sounds like that was an increased CR, but I don't see what it was previously.

Here's the page on heads for the six. Don't know what "T/E holes" are, but there were changes going. Maybe you can find something online about how to tell what head you have.

Yup. But, is there something going on of which I'm not aware? (Boy, that sounds awkward, but I know that "that I'm not aware of" isn't right. What was it Churchill said? “This is the sort of...
