I'm putting the head back on an '86 Trooper turbo diesel (C223T). Unfortunately, I didn't take it off and have some questions:
There are 9 threaded holes for the intake/exhaust manifold. How many are studs and how many bolts? Where do the studs go verses the bolts?
When I put the timing belt back on, I know the arrows on the pump and cam gears must lineup while the notch on the balancer pointing to 0 TDC. Question is, how do I know if I'm at TDC on the compression stroke or the exhaust stroke or does it matter? Don't I need to know this to adjust the valve clearance?
WHEN YOU HAVE THE CAM AND PUMP PULLEYS AND THE CRANK PULLEY AT THEIR CORRECT MARKS, YOU WILL BE ON TDC NO 1 CYL AND BOTH VLV SHOULD BE LOOSE
