Re: serious repair question
Well,besides part prices at Sub dealer being outragous in price,it went.....well,,,, ok i guess. was easy to get to timing belt and water
pump.installation of water pump was easy,timing marks leave a lot to be desired though.belt tensioner is a great idea gone wrong.Its
a hydrolic piston type that you have to compress slowly in a vice and lock it down with a small pin that you have to supply.I used a small hex
key.It worked out ok but there are much easier to live with setups out there.Biggest problem is the darn thing air locked in the cooling
system and gave me a fit for a couple hours trying to burp it out.finally got it,how? i have no idea it just decided to cooperate finally.
replaced rocker cover gasket and bolt seals as well but it is still leaking a good amount of oil down on the exaust somewhere near the
rear of the engine.so much stuff on the motor you cant see back there,where i can see it is dry.I supose that is next.
