I use the horse shoe to put the inlet cam timing slightly out so when you tighten the dephaser it pulls the cam into the correct final position. Its obviously not the correct procedure but it works for me.
I think you raise at least 2 valid points here.
The first takes me back to the time I lost a dock side bet and was forced at gun point to pleasure a chimp dressed as an Asian businessman.
Thirdly it takes 2 to tango! That car was upside down when I got here and as for your grandmother? Well...
Thats fair enough. I know everyone is different but i personally prefer to use a cheaper oil but change it more often. If you are after a decent oil ive heard Royal Purple is about as good as it gets.
They'll take 800bhp if you give them forged rods and uprate the valve springs. Crazy motors, you can get them to 330bhp naturally aspirated. I cant think of a better 4 cylinder engine i'd love to have even a standard one in the clio.
If the belt was done 9 years ago it will need changing based on age not mileage. Cambelt is 5 years or 72000 miles.
If you're not planning on keeping it i wouldnt bother with the cambelt but it needs doing if you are.
Cambelt isn’t too tricky on the Cup’s. I researched the process on here and there was more than enough information to give me the confidence to give it a go.
Might as well pull the engine and do the clutch at the same time 👍
