Boothy Posted August 3, 2007 Share Posted August 3, 2007 This week I had the use of Saleys ramp to replace the rear crank seal which I thought had failed on my beloved V8. Saley and myself removed the autbox Wednesday only to find out it was the rear camshaft coreplug that had "fellout" (that another tecnical thread) anyway no coreplug on site so abandon for the day to resume Thurs morning. Thursday morning, Saley has to go out untill about 10.00 he says, so Boothy thinks do the impossible and get it single handed before he returns. Boothy does it with seconds to spare, bellhousing bolted up, gearbox mounts bolted up, cooler pipes fitted, speedo cable done, gearshift cable fitted, just the torque converter left to bolt up. Saley totally impresse by Boothys efforts came to help by turning the front pulley while Boothy fits four pins to plex plate. "It's very stiff Chris this is" states Saley, following a nose around,Boothy goes sick when we realise I've fitted the flywheel the wrong way around, ring gear bolts facing the box instead of the engine, if you've ever done one to will realise what I mean. Start again from square one,to finish. Reason for post. 1 To thank Saley for use of ramp and assistance. 2 To thank Mrs sales for food and use of Husband 3 To warn others about rushing, and being a smart***e 4 To tell the truth before Slacklips Sales does, and you know he will Keep checking you know it make sense.
