IMS question

I am in the process of replacing my IMS bearing on my 99 base. After removing the flange the end of the shaft has shifted sideways so that it is no longer centered in the bore. Looking for a solution.

Thanks!!!

Let me guess: You did not lock the crank TDC, lock the cams, and remove the hydraulic chain tensioners before you pulled the flange. If so, the tensioners have pulled the shaft to one side, probably also jumping cam time in the process.

The solution is going to be complicated as you are going to have to pull all the tensioners and completely retime the cams, which is going to require some specialized tools and knowledge. Good luck.

JFP, thanks for the bad news! Better than beating around the bush, I suppose. Figured out where in the process I went wrong. Looks like I have some work ahead of me.
