Ok. Will do. If you have any pointers for safely cleaning engine, I’m game.
Got to stop for today. I’m due somewhere at 5:00 and I’m dirty from crawling under truck for pics. I never did pull plugs to turn by hand because I got remote button, so next time I will clean timing disc, pull plugs and turn by hand as you said. May be tomorrow, may be Monday. Depends on what my gal has going for the weekend. Thanks again guys. I’m trying my best.

Back at it, cleaned timing disc, I can read all markings. Took plugs out, trying to turn by hand, not having much luck.

Ok. I definitely do not have a socket that size, do you know the size off hand? I can grab one later on the way to work.

Don't know, find a bolt or nut that matches or measure or push some playdough on it and measure that.
