A Big Thank You to ianacole
« on: May 17, 2005, 04:36:25 PM »
I went over to Ian's house to intall the dreaded timing belt. It was a easy labor install but mentally ( the first time for me with a timing belt ) it was a small pain in the ass for this first timer.

  I think by the time I finish my second timing belt that it will be a piece of cake. Overall it took about 7 hours to install and i think by the time we do his belt it will only take 5-6 hours. He saved my ass..so thank you again :D  My water pump had about another month to go at the max and my car sounded like a diesel when i brought it in for the belt change.

 Now, its quiet and runs like it did before. One problem that we had was when we put everything together and started the car it shook like my old 55 chevy truck..it was rocking back and forth like crazy and ran like crap..we couldnt figure out what was wrong...

it turned out to be a coil pack connection issue and when the connections were pushed back into place...it ran like a champ!

p.s. you still owe me a ride on the twisties by your work ;)

We did break an hour for lunch.  Plus we spent a bit of time trying to figure out the engine mount...bleh.

That'd be cool...we could do a run to Sonic or something over lunch.
