You shouldn't blame the car if you are not up to the job in the first place.

I think it might have something to do with it not sliding on easily and then using a sledge hammer to help ease it on... lol...

Neither do I, but in the last 2 days, I have heard of guys using hammers to do the work of a Ford special tool. And a roll of Gaffa tape to fix an idler pulley.

Who says you cant fix Falcons with a hammer and tape. I realise its a bit late not, but going by this theory, you could have used Gaffa tape to fix the cracks in the timing case, then hammer the bastard back on. :D

This is what happens when you overtighten the bolts.
