I see it No.3 which has gone - was it big ends ? - The chances are that the crank and conrod are shot if that's the case.
yeah big end, crank and conrod no1 knackard, sorry didnt really explain very well.
Do you know the history of the replacement engine ?
the replacement engine has done 66k and i listened to it before i bought it, ran find no knocks etc but no idea when the belts were done.
the plan is to change the shells, belts and variator, i was thinking about the clutch but depends on the funds:
I would do it as a complete unit with everything attached and make the car meet it halfway.
was does that mean, meet the car half way? this is my first engine change so not sure how to go about doing it. its the weight and size of the engine that worries me as to how to get it in as one unit?
