When replacing follower gaskets is it best too shim the blocks using the timing gauges or is it just as good to measure the gaskets? Also what would be a reasonable labor time to do all three blocks? Thanks

It depends , if it was the rear block you would probably just measure the old gaskets and insert the same - but if it,s middle or front block you have to take off compressor etc etc so you,d check timing on all three with the timing gages then replace your gaskets and recheck the timing - it,s always best to use the timing tool as it,s more accurate and you don,t end up having fast or slow timing differences between cylinders Regards David

The size of shim should be imprinted on the shim you remove. While it would be best to use the timing gauges as long as Im not changing any parts such as cam or followers I have just replaced the shims with the same size with no ill effects

First, make sure that the leak is coming from the mating surface.....not a cracked housing or leaking shaft. If you are that far, it is best to just go ahead and go through the timing process.....total time depends on the vehicle it is in and you. The reason I would go through the timing process is that otherwise you are assuming it was done correctly last time it was done and I have seen so many mistakes made by one mechanic assuming that obviously the last preson did it correctly. Timewise it could be a day...it could be two or more. If it is in a lopsided short nose Ford, ugggg...I wouldn't want to guess...that is one I hate to do.
