Oil pump is ran off a chain connected to the same place as the cam chains

Oil pump bolts are also main bearing cap bolts


Main bearing and cap.. looks pretty good to me. Wonder if the sratches in there are from when it was ran with this milkshake like oil

Slick as can be in person, looks kind of scratched in pictures

Crankshaft, main bearing journal

Looks rough but it also was as slick as can be

Rod bearing/cap

Has one scratch towards the center but is smooth otherwise

One of the timing chain tensioners or guides. I was trying to see if they've ever been replaced
