    Hmm, ate a guide. This is one of the things that has put me off the 4G52/54 engines are the collection of guides and chains. It makes working on them complicated. I think there's a non-balance shaft chain kit for the 4G54 (forklift engine?)

    @ claych - glad you'd have me, but if I'm struggling to get my truck on the road there ain't much chance of getting myself on a plane

    It did more than that... It tore the bolt out of the balance shaft, destroying the end of the balance shaft and ripping the gear completely off the end of the balance shaft

    Ah well. That kit does exist, and after all of the cleaning and disassembly I'll be ordering parts.

    Bearings are completely destroyed. The crank doesn't look much better, unfortunately... It'll need the journals polished at a minimum.

    Jeez, that is easily as bad as the catastrophic damage my original G63B engine went through. With the bottom end that badly chewed up, I'd be worried about the head. Got my fingers crossed your crank can be salvaged...

    The crank will need polishing, but the scratches aren't very deep so it shouldn't need ground...

    The rear main seal might need some help, but it should be fine.

    Yepppp, another balance shaft failure. Sounds like you have a good handle on it. I think, but someone else should confirm, that the cam chain tensioner is pressurized by the oil pump. Pretty sure the little spring in there is just to keep it tensioned while the engine is shut off. Low oil pressure could explain why your timing was jumping around. I can't tell by the picture, but it looks like the guide still had some meat on it.
