I ordered a new idler gear and washers as well as the starter. Waiting on idler gear but can use old one for engine flush. It doesn't look worn but I can't be sure.
Hi, I personally would never use an engine flush, But as you have swarf contamnation you will need to try and clean out,
What about running a couple of oll changes, Maybe with a cheap brand to start with,
