what a coincidence! i was working on this project a short while ago. i'm taking a break now.
you wrote: "if its the same then its set timing". what did you mean?
from my observation, i also concluded it was the O-ring inside the oil pump. but i bought the housing, which include the pump, the crank seal, all installed. i didn't want to take a chance by just replacing the O-ring, in case there are other issues with the housing.
