I started this hol/weekend with a project to change my water pump, thermostat, oil pump and timing belt. The water pump went easy but the oil pump has turned into a bigger project than intended.
But now that I have the engine pretty stripped down I would like to go ahead with the shaft delete, as I was already going to leave out the secondary timing belt and tensioner, ect.
I already have the delete kit and I understand how its supposed to work, I just want to know if anybody has done it while the engine was still installed.
- can it be done this way?
- will I have enough access to remove/install the new bushings?
- do I have to remove the 'cradle' that includes all the bearing caps?
THX, for any info.
