Default Need Help removing brge tubes ???

Hi,

I am replacing the o-rings on the cam bridges. Engine in car - have removed one bridge ( right side) will do the left in AM.

My question - how do you get the oil tube that connect to the brdige and the engine out to replace the o-ring. I have been pulling but it wll not budge!


Thanks!!!!

Just keep pulling! It's got an o-ring on both ends - just wiggle and pull as straight out as possible. Just watch your knuckles when it finally comes loose!!!

Which replacement o-rings did you get? The ones from Pelican don't fit without pinching and tearing apart...

If you heat the metal portion just below the plastic bridge with a blowtorch for about 3 seconds they will pop right off with very little effort.

Thanks all. Finished the job this weekend. Appreciate everyones response.

I am tracking down soem oil weeps. Since the bridge o-rings were replaced and i cleaned everything , it appears theese o-rings were the source of the oil on the cam towers. Well all except one - the left (top) tensioner cover appears to be wet. I did nto clean it after this weekend's job, so i tightened the nuts on the cover ( they were loose) and cleaned it all up.

Anticipating that I will not be so lucky - I have a question.

Can I replace the tension cover gasket ( left top) without distrubing the cam timing?

Thanks !!!

Earl

Yes you can replace both hydraulic tensioner cover gaskets without disturbing the cam-timing.

Anything special with the procedure - to insure the cam does not move. Or is simple on and off with tension cover.

I have not worked on the 3.6 tensioner, but have done some work on earlier 3.0.

Appreciate it guys!

No special procedures that I can think of.
