Hey

Any chance that anyone out there has one i can borrow possible next weekend? i need to lift out my engine from the GT and put it in the RS.. BUT while its out i want to replace a few things such as

cam seals

crank seals

o-ring seal

and replace a cambelt guard all of which i need to removed the cambelt for, i have no experience with cambelt so looking for a wise one to come along and help out (either supervise me or do it themselves)

True, well that make life easy.. better head into armstrong and get the seals to ensure they are here on time.

Done you got the job, i'll get ya a box for your effort ;D i was thinking that in the afternoon i'll put on a bbq and beers for the lads that gave a hand

what would be easier, dropping gearbox and engine in as one? or installing the gearbox and dropping the engine onto the box?

i never done the gearbox+motor drop before. be interesting if it works.

ive seen people doing this the mitsi way. lift the car up over the drivetrain and then lower the car and lift the drivetrain up.

putting gearbox in the car without the motor is piss easy. and then the motor drop another 30minutes. then putting everything back in about 30min to 1 hour depending on how much need to go back in

Doing the engine and box as one is pretty easy. Just lift the engine by the front legs of the manifold and it tilts back perfectly to all go in the hole. I find it much faster than doing the two separately.

Yeah just flick me a text i'll be starting the suspension swap tomorrow (so what side do you want?), i've just completed the interior stuff and rewired the sounds so looking pretty good at this stage, hopeful all should be done by this weekend (or at lest most of it) now that the misses has gone on holiday late nights here we come

Can you bring around your spring compressors?

Thanks to Jase, now have my new gauges in and they look mean as..

if the motor is out of the car you wont need to mark anything apart from the timing belt if you re-using it?

yip, esp since you fella's are only down the road and around the corner - it'd be rude not to show up. just do what i do, show up with a toolbox and attempt to look busy

I'm non-stop on call for the next 120 hours straight, but I'd be keen to drop by and catch up, even though I have nothing useful to contribute (unless someone loses a finger or a hand).

hmmmm....we are dealing with heavy equipment: gearboxes and motors; safety shoes, hard hats, safety glasses, etc... will be a must on the day - but anything could happen
