I spent a little time with the TO4 since my last post and it says that the timing gear on very early models, which this is, is pressed on to the cam shaft. If that is the case a complete tear down of the engine is in order. It upsets me more because I did a complete rebuild of this engine four years ago. Would not be so upset if I had to tear down GO. It runs great but does not have the power that PC does since the rebuild.
I'm wondering what happened if the timing gear is jammed by tramp metal. Did it spin on the shaft?
