  1. Not enough room to get a 14 pounder in though, not without collateral damage
  2. Get a stretch fit boot and a fitting cone, simple. But yes, there is a circlip and giving it a few sharp whacks will knock the joint off.
  3. I always do it with a syringe. fill the canister as much as you can and just keep squirting it in until it will literally take no more, take some time but does work.
  4. Got a call about a 'wheel bearing' job for the weekend. guy was joining dual carriageway at around 50-60mph and all of a sudden with no prior warning felt the back end of the car going. its completely worn through the tyre too. looks to me like the hub nut has split and fell away as there is no witness marks on the thread other than where it once sat. No work has been carried out on that corner in years either so it hasn't been disturbed. New discs/pads with bearings and tyre required. Hopefully the stub axle is ok but I won't know until I strip it down.
  5. PM me your email address mate
  6. I'm sure our local ford dealer is around £90 an hour in central Scotland.
  7. The last one I done using a Dayco kit and genuine water pump (I always use a genuine pump where I can) and coolant come in around £160 parts so yeah probably about right if you say £50 an hour.
  8. Many petrol engines don't have a filter, simply a 'strainer'.
  9. Off hand I'm sure the book time for just the timing belt kit and belts is 2.9 hours? Waterpump probably adds half an hour or something. For all the extra cost, i would add on having the coolant replaced entirely as they will need to drain 50% of it to do the pump
  10. What bits you stuck at?
  11. Just a standard ford then
  12. What am I looking at here? a fuel tank strap?
  13. I can see that but if you had slowed down and kept rolling which there was plenty of room in front to do so you would likely not have been hit?
  14. The short answer? absolutely no one lol The local council mot station is where we go now, much less hassle as they dont do repair work.
  15. You should have the crankshaft pin fitted but do not move the crankshaft, leave it touching the pin. Your new timing kit should have instruction with it, follow them exactly and that's all there is to it
