TDC for timing cover ?
Hey guy's, i am planning on replacing the timing cover gasket on my 4.2l and i am looking for second opinions. The haynes manual says to position #1 piston at TDC before disconnecting the electrical connection at the camshaft position sensor. my question is if i am not going to be messing with the timing gears or removing the timing chain do i really need to do TDC?
Just wondering if i need to bother doing it.
