Saturday's escapades...

Got busy with Lola on Saturday The lucky girl got:

Cam belt and tensioner change (had already done the water pump a few months ago)
Obviously new coolant/antifreeze
Oil and filter change
One new tyre
Topped up diffs
Topped up gearbox
Topped up transfer box
welded the back box up
Greased the props & UJs
Jet washed the chassis in prep for giving her a Waxoyl coating

Should've been pretty quick and easy stuff, but the crankshaft bolt and pulley put up a serious fight! In the end my brother and I had to fabricate tool to hold the pulley still (to stop the engine rotating) and use a 4' long 3/4" breaker bar to undo the bolt! Still, I guess 341Nm, thread lock and several years heat will do that to a bolt!

Well, I was going to post a few pics up for you, but it looks like the iPad and Defender Source don't like each other... I'll stick them on tomorrow, when I'm at the PC

I was working on a customers 300 tdi to get the timing right with a dial indicator last night and went to turn the engine backwards to get the lift right and the damn crank bolt backed out !

The "rover shop" that had replaced his injection pump hadn't used thread lock or an impact putting the bolt back in. I guess its a good thing they also didn't time it quite right so the error was caught before the crank nose got chewed up.
