Readjusted Bank 1 slightly and on both side the angles now hover right around 0.0 degrees. But I still have error code 33. Implausible values for "Spaetanschlag". I read German but I have no idea what that means. Nor can I find an interpretation anywhere of the live values I get. Should these angles be consistently positive numbers?

The motor is running better now than before and I have a bit more power. I am generally satisfied with how it runs but to get it through the emissions test it needs to be clear of codes......

Edit: I spent an hour reading about this and two things are supposed to help, most seem to advance the reluctor wheels by a few degrees. One person insisted that pressing down the upper timing covers (in effect changing the position of the CPSs relative to the reluctor wheels) helped.

Yesterday the new fuel tank breather valve arrived. One less fault code! It had been bad since before I took the motor out.

Unfortunately I leaned in to put the FTBV in and snapped the small pipe running around the top of the coolant tank. It was so brittle it broke in to 20 pieces when I tried to remove it. Temporarily Jerryrigged a hose until I can get a replacement tomorrow.

The wind screen washer pump also arrived. Now I just have to stem the oil leak which I think is the banjo of the separator tho I am starting to wonder as the leak is quite bad. May have to pull the stiffening plate again to replace the rings on the banjo and do another adjustment on the bank 1 reluctor.

For the moment just running it while I work on the 05 tundra; suspension and timing belt.

Do you have a new OEM tensioner? With old tensioner, the valve springs will push the cam forward when the love gets past TDC. Typically you'll get a cam too advanced error. Also the cam weirdness error often from a tired cam sensor. At end of life they rarely fail completely they just start working poorly.

Thanks Andrew. Good suggestions! The chain tensioner is already a few years old, but it is the updated version. Nevertheless, I will order a new one just to be sure.

Probably also worth investing in 2 new CPS. This latter swap is less obvious as it had no codes regarding timing when I removed the engine. Still worth a shot as I seem to be close. In terms of power output, it runs pretty much the way I expected now.

All's well that ends well :)

So I ordered the chain tensioner and while waiting decided to work on my '05 Tundra to get it ready to sell. I made a 100 mile run in the E53 to the Toyota dealer to recover the Tundra after they did the airbag recall. Then did another 50 mile run in the E53 with my daughter after which my wife took the keys and she has been using it whilst I enjoyed a three night stay at a local hospital from last Sunday..... (No, not Covid related)

Today I am finally back on my feet, the weather is great and was thinking about what to do first. Decided to start INPA and look at the engine codes and the live analog data again since the SEL was still on last Sunday. However, when I started up the e53 to my surprise the SEL was off! The fault code was still stored but clearing it and then restarting the motor did not generate a new FC. Live data now showed Vanos angles 15 deg and dropping to 7-8. I am happy as now it can go to the emissions test. At last she is running as intended after the very long interim on jack stands. )

I will still install the new tensioner and need to fix the oil leak. I now feel I should start looking for a glass supplier for the front windscreen and spend an afternoon cleaning and waxing the paint. Also have a set of headlights that I want to finish modding.

Andrew, thanks again for great pointers!
