Major engine service, what would you change
Hi there all, I've got a small tappet sound that has been traced to the bottom end, thoughts of removing the sump and replacing the shells has expanded to pulling the engine out and striping the hole thing down.
The reason for that has come from the fact that I can use a ramp at my mates car garage and have the use of all there tools and the advice from their mechanics for as long as it takes.
What I would like to know is what would you change/upgrade to the engine while its out and on the bench, I could also sort out the gearbox at the same time as Ist gear syncro is not great.
Any advice is gratefully received and when the big job comes around I will keep you posted on a new thread.
The engine is a 2.0 twin spark phase 2 1999
