Got talked into doing a headgasket replacement on a little 3-pot 1.0 corsa at the weekend, realllly wish i'd said no!

10 hours it's taken me to do it so far, mainly because the timing chain is a pain in the backside to refit on your own cos the damn thing keeps slipping a tooth. Then there's the fun of putting the timing cover back on. Then finding your gasket set includes all but the water pump gasket to finish the job!

Apparently these 3-potters are bad for headgaskets, so i've told the lad to take it to a garage next time it goes

Uuuuuuurgh
