Re: Timing belt ??
Thanks Ackd & Nowhere.... I have the FSM as well. Today I checked the ignition timing and was dead on at 8 degrees (this is what the 1.6 calls for). There was a strange hissing as it idled and I tracked it down to rubber vaccume port plugs that had deteriorated and caused a vaccume leak. Now it's purring pretty! I usually assume the worst as I found that I usually learn by repetition. I'm so glad I don't have to do it again!
Sometimes I get lost with the FSM and hence I use the dreaded Haynes and Chilton's as supplements. In concert, they give a pretty clear picture of what should be happening. Sometimes I still get lost....
Thanks for the offer..... Now if I could only find in the Green Hymnal, Armaments, vs. 1-5, no, 3......... Maybe I could use the Holy Hand Grenade to rid they rest of the gremlins?......
All Good Medicine,
Creator, everything we do leaves a track. May our tracks be ones we would want you to see and others to follow......
