Cheese back on the road...

happy days..... after two months of waiting my gtv 2.0L ts is back on the road. All the following done.

used engine fitted.
cam belt kit and timing.

sounded like a pile of poo and therefore

cylinder head fitted (skimmed)
cam belt and timing done (again)

then developed huge oil leak blowing oil down underside of car...

rear crank oil seal
drive shaft seal replaced
all fluids topped up

at last back on the road, squeeky bum time taking her for the first run. Especially when engine management light came on but thankfully went off after a few miles.

Still a lot of oil on the underside of car, hopefully after a few more runs this will have burnt off.
Slight oil leak coming from the drivers side of the engine but am hoping this will settle down after a few good runs. But am so pleased to be back on the road

Nice work!! Glad it all got sorted in the end

Mine had a drop of oil under the oil filter yesterday... it was so so loose I bet it would have dropped all my oil out in another 1000 miles if I hadn't spotted it!!
