Valve Adjustment HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

I am going to adjust valves on my '02 and so far have the valve cover off, so far so good. Now I see that I need to move the engine to TDC which is noted on the pump gear housing. HELP...is this pump gear (with the indicator line) under the Crankcase Breather??? I have the hose off and can't seem to get the Crankcase Breather off if that's where the gear is located.Great pictures and help on the link here for adjusting valves but the part about the gear with the TDC mark was not shown. I have the Dodge Shop Manual on CD and it shows the breather as coming off....how do I get it off and if I do get it off, how do I get it back on securely? I hate to start prying on stuff and break it. Waiting for further instructions. Thanks.

Use an oilfilter wrench on the big black part,as you face the engine turn left. Look inside the hole with a shop mirror,you will see the line.

You are going to like the rv's. They are not mind numbing, but very nice. A little gain in the mpg's too.

Actually when I installed my 275's I noticed a big difference off the line. I have the auto and I can now spin the tires even with the limited slip differential. No brake locking required. I couldn't do that before with the stock injectors.
