and when your 505 breaks down in the desert in Chad, with some unfriendly Toureg on your tail, you can probably fix it. but i probably wont anyway. unlike some cars.
funnily enough, i have recently driven a C63, and can report that if you drive one, you would be hard pushed to not thrash the thing away from every set of lights you stopped at. it was just effing...
so, how will we know when we have reached the point where Amaroks have 'proved themselves' (or not..)?
no, i think your intuition is right: the belt couldnt transfer that amount of heat. rather i think the idlers were just worn out.
the compounding issue is that the exhaust pipe had melted a hole...
fyi, prices i paid as follows:
*Exedy clutch kit (flywheel, disc, pressure plate, TO bearing, spigot bearing) $470
*Timing belt kit (belt, 3 idlers, tensioner) $330

that was timely information, Fordman. you have really made my day! having removed PSU, alternator, aircon, crank pulley and timing cover again, i found that quite possibly the belt guide was a bit...
Fordman, thank you so much for persevering.
that seems to hit the nail on the head, and i will take the cover back off and have a good look.
of course! someone has to pay for the service!
yes, i completely agree with what you are saying, yet i couldnt see anything asymmetric on the path of the belt. even though it is so darn clear, and you would expect to find something that was the...
there most certainly is a guide, though its purpose isnt really clear from looking at it. i would hope a properly tensioned belt wouldnt slip a tooth anyway! that said, i dont think there was any...
true! that was my first thought when i pulled the cover off.
oh silly, they are unidirectional.
i agree on the maximum mileage bit, but have some doubt about the least cost part.
odd.. i can see the image, but i have recopied it in.
this is a 2005 Liberty. interference engine, so just as well the belt didnt break.
this is a timing belt i have just removed from a subaru liberty. plainly, it has seen better days, and i would think it was a significant failure risk. i have changed a handful of belts,...
hotrods do, however, use the original chassis, and most of the body panels, so there is actually quite a bit of the original car in them.
i was wondering if there is actually any 2CV in the above...
pardon my ignorance, but is there actually any 2CV in the car at all?
the funniest thing is the link name
i'm not sure what is scarier: that the car exists, or that someone else thinks it was...
so it wont heppen overnight?
i asked the supplier for more information about the modified Japanese starter motors. this was his response:
having received the one i bought, i would say that it is indistinguishable from a...
and the capital gain not so good.
you might splurge on a set of rachet spanners. they are very handy in confined spaces.
what became of the contents?
i did like the compact fairlane i drove for some years, but i really only think about cars i havent owned.
so buy one and stick in the factory with you and your brothers' other cars'
you may well be right; after all, the reason the old one failed is because of a missing bolt, which doesnt really reflect on its general reliability. anyway, i will report back in due course about...
