    I thought about that all day at work!! Would be rough to do all that and it not be there, not to sound funny but did you try to vacuum it out before you take all that apart?? Worth a try man......

    In the time spent discussing the job could be done. This is under an hour.

    Ok, well I got it all apart and there was no Q-Tip in there :banghead:. Oh well, I learned a lot.

    I got to the point of just needing to pull the crank pulley off and remove the lower timing cover when I found a mysterious q-tip sitting next to my jack on the ground. I assume it had finally come dislodged from wherever it was hiding and fell down from the vibrations of me working. I was so far along at this point that I just kept going in order to inspect the timing components, which looked good.

    I am currently reassembling everything and have gotten to the point of putting the power steering oil pump pulley back on. However, I can't find torque specs for the nut that holds it on. I've referred to my Hayne's, Chilton's, and FSM's and can't find anything. I've done searches and only found the torque spec for the 420A. Does anyone know?

    Wait! I was referring to the bolts that hold the ps pump to the bracket. What crush washer are you talking about?

    See the pulley beneath/next to my hand? The washer and nut came off that. Is it ok to reuse this washer?

    Oh you removed the nut for the pulley. Yeah that’s just a washer you can reuse. Look at the link and it should have the torque spec for that

    Good time to put a new o-ring on the stud.
