That's amazing work. I'm just waiting for some spark plugs to arrive in the mail so I can do a valve adjustment, but I might as well order those bolts & parts now too. Even if my '02 isn't loose, I'll end up doing this since the engine will be opened anyways.

Thanks!!

I'd like to see how the bolts look on a non-loose cam gear.

He said he did it over the weekend, so I am guessing it's a ~8 to 10 hour job.

What parts (gaskets) needed for valve cover removal? I just want to check out if the sprocket is loose for piece of mind. Are all of these parts needed from Tischer for removal and replacement?
