Just an update on January and Feb 2017.

[attachment=17100:Exhaust_polys.jpg]
Got my Polyurethane exhaust bungs.


Hi,

What's the benefit of using poly hangers?

Finally.. after nearly 10 years I finally brought a brand new variator!!


If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for it?

Cheers

The benefit of using poly hangers is they look uber coool lol! Also probably less chance of deterioation. I've seen a lot of tie-wraps on exhaust bungs on Alfas.

The variator cost 119 from eBay.

Hope this helps.

The variator cost 119 and the variator shells about 35 from Shop4Parts (I think)

Attached Image

Old cambelt tensioner with 140K on the clock and the new Dayco one

Attached Image

The cam tools needed all found on eBay. I got the pulley tool and the cam locks really cheap. I think I paid 15 for both!! The tensioner tools also sourced on eBay.

Used a wood screw to open up the hole.

Fed the wire through.

Thanks mate! If I see a rusty bolt I start twitching lol! Just putting it together with love and care. Wish I could take the engine out and give it the full treatment but I'd be working on it for another couple of years if I did that.
