Well today has been a bit more productive despite a 5am call out I got in the garage at 11 I had a bit of a tidy up,
Image
Once I'd done thatI proceeded to finish the last fight with the crank pulley I ended up needing to use a puller but I won!
I then replaced the front main and aux shaft seals and fitted the new shiny water pumps
Image

Then I decoked the head and set the valve clearances before fitting the head

Image

I then investigated what had bee scoring the old cam belt
Image

After replacing an over long sump bolt I fitted the new cambelt before rotating the engine 4 times by hand.

That's me done for tonight

If its not one thing it's another, now the injection pump on my mondeo has failed, leaving swmbo without a means to get to work, and a new pump is far from cheap :( I have however a contact who breaks these cars who will do,me a pump with 90days warranty for £170 so not so bad Bly issue is he insists its fitted by a garage, so that's another £200 in labour but still a lot cheaper than the £650 for a as new recon pump.

Kit front

My carbs are all refurbished and ready to refit I've ordered my exhaust joiner ready to fit once that arrives, the head is all refitted and cam belt changed along with the offending bolt that was damaging the old belt, the alternator bracket it remanufactured and painted, I have however noticed my top coolant hose isn't really fit for,purpose so that will need reworking.

I'm hoping to,get the carbs refitted and the engine bay work squared away over the weekend parts permitting then I can start on the new rear tub cover

The list goes on.
