I’m spending this bank holiday weekend at Alex’s Uncle’s place reassembling our Toyota Hiace Camper that we bought last year.
The timing gear went and we’re replacing it a few other bits whilst it’s dismantled. This is the engine without the timing in or the radiator in front of that.
I spent 4 hours in there cleaning of the old gaskets that had vulcanised themselves on after 37 years of 180,000 miles and heat.
Yesterday evening we got in all the pistons and they move like silk, we checked the wear on the bores and there was pretty much none, which is incredible.
Today we reinstall the fuel pump, distributor and head.
