    Default Swirl Rod and manifold Woes

    Car was in today to get the swirl rod bar thingy fixed but unfortunately, some of the lugs have broken off the pots so not able to fix, need to replace.

    Anyone have any experience or comments on these from ebay? Are they complete?

    And does the timing gear need to come off to replace the manifold? What sort of hourage is involved in labour on an average?

    Oooooooofffffffff. No danger. Had a good read through and there's parts in there that I would fail on an epic scale on.

    The most mechanical thing I have done is change a turbo on my old Z20LET - that took me an hour to get off and 6 to get back on.

    Judging by the how2, it looks like a good 5 or 6 hours for a mechanic?

    Oh,that's alright then if it's only 5 hours!!!!!.Much better than spending the afternoon in the pub having to enjoy oneself what?. FELIXX.(Jesus, I've got NO CHANCE of even attempting to do something like that.If I tried to do THAT,the car would most probably never run again)!!!!!!.

    Its not quiet as bad as it looks! But is Fairly involved, This 1 took from around 10.30 to 4.30-5.00pm , but that included getting all the tools out/putting them away, plus taking pics & notes to put the 'how 2' together.

    You make it sound as easy as doing a brake shoe replacement on an old capri!!!!!. F**K ME,from those photographs,it looks like a VX mechanic would have trouble doing it.And then some!!!.FELIXX.

    To be honest after doing one its just a matter of doing it quicker!, the main part is pump removal , After that its just getting into a sequence of removal & replacement!, But!! as you have observed its 'NOT' a job to be taken on without some knowledge.
