    Default Cambelt and water pump done today!!!!

    Well have finally fitted my new cambelt kit and water pump,did'nt do it on my own had a mate to help me out who know's engine's inside out,only had 1 problem the tensioner bolt,how shallow is it had to chisel the old one off....... But finally got it off and changed water pump too,the old one was making a right racket,i originally thought it was the cambelt pulley's but after reading everyone else's experience's it pointed to water pump,glad i bought it and fitted it at the same time,could've been disasterous........

    Also gave the motor its first oil change for over 2 years.... I know it should be changed regularly but something always came up,changed the spark plugs and leaking cover gasket,so all in all a good days work,runs so much quieter now,would like to thank the site for all the info i needed and to keep it up,cheers......
