What i got to this weekend (Pics inside)
Timing belt tensioner busted this weekend, spent friday and saturday replacing it. we had to remove the radiator becuase the tensioner bolt busted off in the block, and we needed clearence to get a drill in there to get it out. otherwise it would defintly be possible without taking out the radiator. anyways.. what a pain in the ass of a job.... spent about $200 in parts.
heres some pics:
The busted tensioner, and pieces of it where they laid when we opened the timing cover:
The Old, and New timing belt tensioners
The various parts we had to remove to get under the timing cover
The smoke cloud that results from trying to start the car with the timing being off 90 degrees
A nice shot with everything removed except the harmonic balancer, which came off later
enjoying a beer after the first succesfull start
