What made you change "the belt" in the first place? How was the water pump doin'? How many miles are on this engine?

If it runs when you pull off the PCV hose the PCV valve is stuck closed when you pull it off you are getting intake air from that vacuum source, which not supposed to happen, should be sucking air from crankcase

"semi interference" that way I understand it only applies to DOHC engines. The pistons will not hit the valves. But if it throws a timing belt, since one cam operates exhaust and one cam does intake. If one cam stops and the other still turns for a few times the valves will touch each other and may or may not do a lot of damage

needs a couple of penny nails or pin punches to align both cams~

There is a stretch of road between my house and the freeway, a back road with about a half mile piece of a gawd awful grade....maybe 9%, it's a 'secret' way to get around a set of CHP scales and trucks go up it at 4, 5mph and even as peppy as my 1,8 is I have to make durn sure I have room, especially 'cause those coming down are doing 90. Literally

we cannot get under the hood to ensure that he's got all timing marks lined up, I shared what I knew about the pin punches setting you on target, just have to remember to remove them before attempting~

@fidell321---Just go ahead and buy another water pump and replace it, you're going to have to do it soon with so many miles on this...isn't it dripping out the weep hole by now?

Pasted verbatim, from wiki ...The 1ZZ-FE is a 1.8 L (1794 cc, 225 lb) Bore is 79 mm and stroke is 91.5 mm. and 140 hp (104 kW) at 6400 rpm with 125.8 ft·lb (170.6 N·m) of torque at 4200 rpm.

Where is Cooper Car company?

too few oil changes and a kid who wanted to rewire everything and pull out door switches and warning buzzers kind of makes this truck kind of a frieght~ even tho only 158,000 and new timing chain still sounds really loose and clanky....blame it on that stupid kid.

Coopers are made everywhere except the US, parts are swiss, parts are british, welded by robots somewhere in Europe BMW~ time tested design hasn't changed much in fifteen years, kinda like the VW beetle, only pricier~
