how the heck does the timing chain cover come off without breaking stuff.. I've been using 2 pry bars where I can, and wedging something in to be able to use a knife to cut away at the silicon, but making minimal progress. and with minimal spots to pry at, i'm at a point where I may end up breaking the darn thing with the leverage i'm putting at spots.

any advice?

have you removed all bolts around the timing cover as well as the 3-4 that run through the middle from of the cover?, is the crank pulley pulled off?

omg, feel free to come punch me in the face, i missed the two in the middle.. not sure how, just exhaustion i suppose?

i'll write more on the issue after i get the cams out and inspect the springs, etc. but what i do know is that the compression across the board is 165psi, and the loud ticking is coming from #4 cyl. area.
