    Got old car back after 8 years but not good :-(

    When it spins over do both the cams turn? And do the lobes line up correctly? 10-2 on no.4? I had this scenario with my Zafira - had oil starvation to cam bearing causing cam siezure and stripped the lugs from the back of the cam gear.

    Gurus - im having difficulty removing water pump

    If you don't remove the engine mounting and bracket you only make the job harder, and in any case, the mounting will stop the engine moving too far - that's what it's for If you are replacing the sprocket, then it's got to be chains off, no?

    MOT time today

    Water cooling makes the copper softer and more malleable than air cooling, but both work.
