How hard is it to replace cambelt?
Hello, the time has come to replace the cambelt in my 156. Unfortunately the cost of getting it replaced by a professional is far too high where I live. So the question is just how hard it is to replace it by myself?
I've looked around online and found some instructions, though its a bit hard to truely risee the difficulty without having the engine in front of me. I've found the cam locks, and the DTI guage. So from what I've seen, I've understood that the cam locks secure the position of the valves by locking those of sylinder 2 and 3, while the guage measures the position of the piston of sylinder 1?
And as long as the locks are at the correct places, and the piston is in its top position, it's just a matter of putting the belt back on and tighten everything to their desired torque?
Nothing vital left out? Nothing else that needs to be locked or in their correct position?
Also worth mentioning that this will be done while changing the engine from a rusted wreck, to a car with engine failure. So it will all be done with the engine outside, which I'm sure makes some of the work easier...
