if im correct the crank pull is the one at the bottom on the aux belt. well had a look and its not centred to the bolt. looks like the belt was tentioned then the pully tightened. any idea if this would make any difference at all in theory it would make it vibrate as it looks off centre to me

the crank pulley is centred via a woodruff key, if its not straight the centre bolt must be loose affraid

also just orderd up a 22b style vent for the pass side and a mini scoop for the dirvers side not a fan of the orginal vents plus gave them to rossi for his carbon fiber job

still havnt touched it with the grinder and welder so been doing abit of prepping and painting which i wish i never started as the bumper was a mess and needed alll the paint taking off as was flaking in places and ok in some so stripped it down
pass vent test fitted. needs abit of jiggling and adjusting to make it fit right as the bolts where stuck by a blind man so ripped them off and need to fiberglass them back on

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

also while i was there i set about the sump. some people say you have to lift the engine ect but in my new experience it isnt the case i got all the bolts out minus 1 on each side and one on front as i hate leaving engines exposed. waiting for some of the sealant gear so i can whip it off and replace it with a quality second hand one i got from drew. cheers again bud.
hopefully going to get the welding done sat morning as its doing my head in now. also got to pop through to ne motor salavge and get myself some odd bolts as forgot where i put them during strippdown lol typical

if you have managed to do this can you post a pic ov the size ov your hands? LOL

yeah mate engine bolted well in and car on the floor mate lol
i used my small snapon gear with the long bar and short bar then the knuclke joint. bit of an arse on going in blind but i got there. the bolts stuck in the socket so that wasnt a problem lol
i do have small hands like skinny finegrs ect check the pic above with the scoop vent thats my hand mate. be fun gettin back on thou not looking forward to it but blue tack in the socket should sort some problems out.

question for you finn what seal do i need for the pickup pipe bit. ive got a full gasket set for aparently the bottom end will it be in there.
god knows where it came from but its what wasnt used after the woodruff key was changed. it even has a cork sumpgasket which we know you dont use lol

tbh i took peoples word for it and assumed i would have to lift the engine but i decided what the fuk ide give it a shot and its a peice of piss tbh mate even with your fingers you could get it off. your tools are just too big lol i dusted off the womanly looking kit and that just say got in.

looks like a trip to subaru for the seals then as the new sump has none as nice and cleaned by drew

unlesssss you have some i could come pick up and exchange coins for matey
