  1. If you bled them out it means they are fully closed so no valve damage will occour.. Make sure engine is just off tdc before bolting down cams just incase !!
  2. I just finished re building the beemer, and it runs pretty darn sweet lol.. Off on the piss now gonna get wasted.. :-)
  3. Nice !!! I'd rather b doing that then re building a bmw engine.. Lol
  4. Nice weather people I have the fun job of doing timing chains and head gasket on a bmw diesel... Any body else up to much on this fine day ?
  5. I have a head that has been skimmed and pressure tested just 4 weeks ago and is 100% pucka, also had the valves re seated and new stem seals fitted.. Has 2.9 corrado cams in there aswell for extra bhp and all the cam pullys aswell.. Ill do it for £150 posted just a case of a gasket and new bolts and away you go... Pm me if needed mate, once paid you could have it by the weekend, save you getting new valves and lifters etc.. I have a receipt from the engineer for proof of the work i had done... Pm me your number if you want to talk about it and ill give you a ring...
  6. Evening Firstly be careful as i spent hours and a grand doing up my vw vento to find out i had a hair line crack in the block, my engine froze up over winder but had no signs of water leak any where, even after i don the head gasket i was still getting oil in the water, i replaced oil cooler, head gasket, timing chains, rad, heater matrix etc etc and still i got oil in the water.. Turned out my block was cracked internally and you cant see it, when it got hot and the crack expanded you could just see a weeping of oil comming oil and my header tank was full of oil... Sounds to me like your luck
  7. I WAS JUST GONNA SAY MAF METER, woops caps lock lol I have a new one if needed, £14 deliverewd
  8. i JUST DONT GET IT.... Cant spend no more time on it or money my babys here in 3 weeks... Its on ebay now so what ever it makes it makes.. I need a car quick lol
  9. Spot on !! dont miss a beat' date=' runs at 90 all the time, no misses, no lumpy idle, no smoke, no rattles it sounds 100 % spot on infact the best sounding vr ive owned... Soon as i drive 10 miles or so the header tank collects about a cm of oil on top of the water, i clamp the header tank hose pipe off so nothing runs back in the system when i remove to tank for cleaning, i empty it all out, clean it with brake cleaner spotless, drive back up the raod and then its full of oil again... Im so PI**ED off with it, i have done every thing 100%, used top make gaskets, bolts, oil cooler and rad...
  10. As some of you are aware i have been having oil issues in my water hense why i got the car cheap, since buying it 3 weeks ago i have done the head gasket, tested and skimmed, replaced all chains top and bottom, fitted a new rad, new heater matrix.. and a ton of other stuff lol... After i ran the car round for a day i noticed that my coolant tank had oil floating on the top again, so i used forte bio degreaser which ads to the coolant to flush all the oil out thinking it was the remains of the head gasket job comming to the top, i then filled with clean anti freeze and away i went.. Next day no
