O.K., I give up!
Putting the truck back together after the "concrete wall event" and I can not get proper clearance between the air intake tube and the spur gear. I have taken everything apart and put it back together again a few times now. Adjusted, pried, etc.
I am sooooo close to bending things, or grinding, or slotting.....
But I don't want to create a new problem somewhere else.
BomberSTi said he had the same problem and solved it with a new motor mount (thanks for the info.! I have it on my new parts list).
Before I order parts, are there others here who have also been down this road?
