hi guys im at the stage of taking off the crankshaft pulley but i need to lock it down to turn the bolt anticlock wise to take the bolt off, now i dont want the mark to move so what tool do i need to lock it down, where do they sell it? I think one was being passed round from one megger to another, does anyone know what tool it is and how to borrow it, or buy it even? Any info appreciated thanks

ok managed to take off the bolt, now how do i take off the pulley, im guessing a pulley puller, is there different sizes of pulleys or would any one be ok? Any info appreciated thanks :)

right went to halfords again and got a 3 leg pulley the big 6 inch one instead of the 4 thinking if i get the small one and it doesnt fit its back to square one, so got it didnt work at first on the long bit, changed it to the small one, and presto it worked, and its on a thin key way thats on the crankshaft itself so the pulley can only go on and off one way :)

pics to follow, off with the covers and the chains next :shocked:

right ive just tooken off the rear chain tensioner + guide, for future reference, watch your fingers, cause the guide is under pressure and when the last bolt comes off from the tensioner it swings to your left pretty fast :shocked:

tooken off the sprocket and timing chain off, not too bad actually :)

forgot to mention that theres a fixed guide near the inside of the V and thats held on by two bolts and slides off the bolt in the middle, easy peasy :)

also as mentioned in another post, u dont have to undo the sump, i am as im gonna get to the pistons but that will come later :)

but on the front where the timing chain cover is, theres two bolts, i undid these two only and the cover came off easily, i think they r both holding the cover to the sump but only them two so thats why if your only doing the heads that u dont need to take off the sump :)

hope this helps :L

next to remove is the cam cap bearings, theres 4 of them, they will be 1L 5L 1R 5R you have to undo these first, well the lefts will be on the front bank (oil side) and the rights will be on the rear bank (coil side).

then undo the bolts holding on the camshafts in the order of the haynes manual :)
