BAD DOG Posted January 18, 2008 Share Posted January 18, 2008 I've been trying to get all the parts and tools lined up that I need to replace the broken timming cover on my E9 out of my MH613 that got wrecked last march. I have all the gaskets and seals needed and a good timming cover that I can use from my parts engine. Iwas looking at my E9 overhaul manual and it requires 4 specialty tools that I don't have, and don't really want to buy unless I absolutely have to. 1 is a J-29288 timming cover to crankshaft alignment tool . 2 is a J-29303 seal driver. 3 is a J-29304 fan drive alignment tool and seal driver that is no longer available from Kent Moore any more. And 4 is a J-29287 cover alignment tool for the water pump drive. Allat a cost of over $1200.00 directly from Kent Moore . What I was wondering if it would be worth trying it without them and doing it a little different by instlling the seals in the housings off of the engine using a little different driver for the same size seals , and use the water pump itself to align the cover. or should I keep trying to find someone with the tools or wait the month long wait an spend the money on these tools I may only use once. Have any of you guys ever changed one of these covers ? And What would You do? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
