First - WHY????

Second - I never realised 16 valves have drum brakes
They don't, which is why a 16v has ABS the same as a 24v
Probably why I never knew! Can’t see what’s not there

Re: Removal of Tailgate

I’ll keep an eye on the weather forecast and look out for a good day - don’t want to be working in the rain or freezing cold if we can avoid it.

Re: Removal of Short Shifter....

Not tried one of these, but did remove the gear lever on the gold breaker when getting the engine out.

Re: Removal of Tailgate

I’ve removed a couple so if we can find a time I could pop over to lend a hand as it is definitely a 2 person job. Half term break is not too far off so that could be a possibility

Does anyone know the approximate weight of the V6 (without gearbox)?

Thanks

Re: Note to all

This sounds like a hard learned lesson. I hope all is well again on the car.

Re: Replacrment 1998 2.0 16v engine

Not a tech, especially when it comes to 16v but I would of thought that the basic block, head, etc are the same which is the key bit if replacing a smoker.

Ancillaries May be different, but you could just swap these off the old engine.

Re: Breakdown

Shall we pencil in Saturday as the forecast is for reasonable weather. I could be over around 9-10 which will give plenty of time to get things done if that suits you.
