    The in/out of the cam is just because of the worn out timing chain and no lifters. If the lifters were there and had pressure on them, the cam would move much less. If you're using the same distributor and timing cover, those gears will work. If you're swapping distributors, then put the old gear on the distributor, or get a new matched set (Matt has them here at Bulltear).

    The drive gear, fuel pump eccentric, and timing gear are held in place with 2 woodruff keys in the cam. Be sure to save them. Make sure the upper gear of the new timing set has a second oiling groove that goes all the way thru (some are blocked with casting flash). The eccentric and distributor gear will also have an oiling slot along with the key way.

    A reman motor looks like the way to go.

    Thanks.

    So On a re-man motor (going w/a 360) do i have to look for the fuel pump eccentric. They said at www.sandjengines.com that all I need to do it the pump (which they supply a kit), timing cover, oil pan & valve covers along w/the intake. Ready to drop in 7/100,000 mile warranty.

    So it I but a kit from Matt, I just bolt it on and the roll pin on the Dist.

    The fuel pump eccentric is the piece between the distributor gear and the timing gear. You'll probably have to re-use the one you have. If the reman motor comes with the timing set on it, make sure you check that the oil slot is clear. Usually, when an engine eats the distributor gear, it's from a blocked oil slot and lack of oil.

    Bob look at this if you can't view the pics then go here --> Post 217 http://www.reno4x4.com/forum/showthr...d-Thread/page9

    I think I need another fuel pump eccentric.

    Question.
    Is this where the fuel pump rides on?



    If so look at this, it has a grove in it and if the new reman engine doesn't have one then I have to get one.

    Is it pressed on or ?

    When I put the HBalancer back/Tcover bolts/cam bolt for the gear, can I use Blue Loc-tight ?

    Will a TF-727 Torque Converter work on a TF-999 trans ?

    No idea on the torque converter. I'm a manual trans kind of guy.

    That is what the fuel pump arm rides on, and yes, I think it's shot. The one from Summit looks right, I wasn't aware of anyone making them. Once you remove the bolt from the end of the cam, the distributor gear, eccentric, and top cam gear are just a snug fit, they should slide off with a light pull. That engine has been badly neglected, the sludge is baked on pretty thick.

    Thanks Bob.

    Found out that the 727 torque converter wont fit the 999.
