Doing the cylinder head. :mad:

Im using the old belt as its only 2000 miles old.

is it just the case of lining up TDC and loosening the tensionser, and taking belt off cams, then lining up timing on cams when replacing and tightening back up tensioner.

or do i need to lock out something.

im not removing any lower pulleys am i ?

done a few heads in my time , hope this is the case.

i found the best way was to drop it to TDC, mark the inner cam cover then cable tie the belt to the cam pulleys :) Then push the tensioner away and remove the cam pulleys from the cams :)

& dont forget to wind motor over by hand in correct direction a few complete revolutions & check the timing marks on cams again...
to make sure you are not 1 tooth out

whats the best way to do it.

lift the head of with manifolds, or remove them first, some of the bolts look in a very awkward positions.

If you have an arp stud kit you will need a 1/2 inch 12 point splind socket ;)

I found it easiest to leave the itlet manifold on the head and remove the full exaust manifold and turbo from the head . Before taking the head off .
