#78712's long awaited facial
Been a bit of a busy time over the last coupla weeks getting prepped for the belt change on the car. This is a first time for me and it has been way overdue for the car, as it is debatable when the belts were last done.
Getting the motor out was pretty straight forward....thanks to Carguy's terrific coverage on this procedure from way back (cheers Jeff) a true inspiration.
The plan is to get the drivetrain/carriage looking a lot fresher, change the belts, check the valve clearances and attend to any issues that become apparent during the process.
I have had it out of the car for a week now, and fabricated a bogey to move it around easier as the suspending on trolley jacks is fraught with all manner of opportunities for the 'pear shape' fairy to visit! I am taking a pictorial register of every step and procedure for my own synapse jogger when it comes to getting it all back together again.
Naturally, I am open to constructive suggestions and queries as this thread progresses
