Rumor is correct - now one needs to come out - and the new one put in.

This is normal right?





The belt was about 3/8" off center of the tensioner. I guess the cover is the only thing that kept it from going out further.

Replaced interior rubber and re-trim rear forward seat

Today I had the day off and a few brown RN boxes had arrived so I tackled some interior work. I replaced both the bulkhead rubber pad and transmission tunnel rubber, both looked to be original and were rotting/ripped up pretty bad in some spots. Install was quite easy, just a little tricky getting the bonnet release cut out right. Weird in the pictures the colors don't look to match between the two but in person they are much closer.

Only thing I do notice is the 5speed "boot" doesn't sit quite as snug as it did before but I will mess with it more tomorrow.

I also completed the last seat to be refitted with an Exmoor trim kit in NAS car denim. The rear forward facing seat wasn't in bad shape just looked a bit out of place and not as new since I refitted the front two seats with new Exmoor trim a while back.

Also a pretty easy job even without instructions. Just pay close attention to how you took the stock seat cover apart and replicate.

The interior looks quite good right now except for my seat boxes as a prior owner looks to have ripped the Hardura off and there are still glue lines showing on the metal I can't for the life of me get off (even with goo be gone). I think my only solution is to buy replacement Hardura from Exmoor and tackle that next although I kind of like the bare metal boxes showing.

Get the update kit. Cant tell from the picture if the tensioner has the shoulder that keeps the belt from walking out and eating itself on the front cover. You got lucky.

Told you something wasn't right! Make sure you adjust your valves too. You will probably be amazed at how differently it runs.

Can you explain what you meant about the bonnet cut out not lining up?

Even in the updated kit the tensionner has no shoulder. It's the crankshaft gear that is changed in the updated kit. It has shoulder on both side.

Swapped out the water pump. The impeller of the old one had eaten it's way into the outer casing...

This was on my 2.5na, the pump started to leak a bit so I replaced it, and I couldn't understand why one was deeper than the other, until I saw all the groove on the casing.

Electroplated some parts that hadn't seen attention since my rebuild.

Note that the barb of the breather fitting is copper brazed.

Looks good. My solution is just evaporating away - I need to start plating again.
