    I improvised with a belt wrapped around the crane and three people standing on it to stop it rotating :eek: o_O

    That is excellent! Sadly I didn't have 3 friends at the time but wedging a screw driver into the flywheel teeth did the job

    Going to do the timing tomorrow. I've got a posh digital torque and angle gauge. Will that be ok to set the belt tension or do i need to buy one of those special ones?

    Does the torque wrench give a live reading or is it one where you set the value and it beeps when you reach it?

    I love new gadgets! Recon it will do instead of that long one you have to tension the belt? I guess you just need to see that the amount of torque is spot on?

    Time for an update - turns out the block was cracked, which is probably responsible for my coolant usage. All breather pipes were full of mayonnaise as was the ladder frame so new block time. Got one from a well know engine rebuild company. Who were prompt and knowledgeable but also tried to convince me to send me all the ancillary parts and pay the charge for not having a usable replacement engine - thought that was a bit of a scam.

    Sprayed the exhaust manifold in high temp paint along with the thermostat housing.

    Also - refurbed turbo!

    Clutch is done. Most of the aux items are on. Just timing to do. The end is in slight.

    Do you need to use a new crankshaft pulley bolt?
