Thanks guys! I like doing a lot of little detailed work when it comes to this. I even went as far as taking off the little brackets on the manifold and painting them! Next up is taking a tooth brush to the wiring harness connectors, they still have some oil/gunk on them.

Also forgot to mention I did install the 10mm oil pump and replaced the o-ring in there (you can see in the picture the orginal was sucking in) along with the o-rings on the heads (they both cracked in to 2 pieces when I took them off) and the plug in the back of the driver side head. Here's some of those photos!

Got the OEM turbo water pump on along with the new timing cover back pieces and the Gates timing kit. Also went to the dealer and ordered all new bolts for the timing covers.

Can anyone tell me if it's normal that the crankshaft gear I can easily move with my fingers from the back tab to the one with the timing mark back and forth. (In the picture the two red tabs in the back). There's a lot of play in it and idk if it's the keyway or what but once I put the belt on everything was very tight and now there's no play.

Tapping wont help. Your better off pulling belt and removing the gear and inspecting. It also looks to be a tooth off if the pic above is supposed to be lined up
