22re timing chain/set timing/rtv/headremoval

Just orderd timing chain, cam, headgasket, and head bolts for my 93' w/22re. To save time taking stuff apart, im thinking of something...could i just pull the head off with all of the intake components still attached? This is a DD truck and needs to be finished over a weekeends time. Another question is, anyone have pics of how to jumper the dist. to set the timing. One more, what kind of RTV sealent do i need to get since i wont be pulling the oil pan, instead i will be taking off only the front 2 and need to reseal where the covers fit together...

I wouldn't just because of the risk of cracking something, and the extra time saved is not that much. You could take the intake off but leave the hoses and wires attache so you don't have to do them over. wich is the most time consuming part of the intake.
Just my 2 cents.

Yes, you can leave the intake manifold and exhaust both installed on the head when you lift it away from the block. Naturally, be very careful to get those wires unhooked. The knock sensor and oil sending unit are below the intake manifold. The fuel filter is also down there and needs one end disconnected if you leave it attached to the block.

yes it can be done (I have done it that way). Like Mike said make sure you get things disconnected before pulling, I broke the knock sensor when I did mine ($110 mistake)I used the "Toyota Black" gasket. Here is a tip don't drain your oil until everthing is put back together, that way any junk that gets into the pan drains out with it. Are you having the head checked at a machine shop while apart? If so don't forget about the long allen head bolt going thru the water jacket holding the intake to the head.

here is a link for the FSM and has all of the info you need for anything on your truck.. Including the diagnostics connector for checking timing and head removal.
