Midlands Anyone good at chains

#1
Hi All,

Quite adept with a spanner, but when it's cam belts/chains I prefer to take it somewhere to be done, is there anyone near Chesterfield S40 that can do them?

Not looking at straight away either

I'm in Sheffield. Have never fitted one, but would be willing to give a hand if you went down the DIY route

That'd be good mate, would ensure that Tea & Bacon are in good and plentiful supply :D

Probably a job for when the missus has gone through labour lol

I'm feeling a meet coming on :)

Also what's the balance shaft? Been reading many threads gaining some knowledge, hence why I'm posting a bit more now lol
its 2 weights inside the engine that spin 2x the speed to counteract the 2nd order vibrations from the pistons going up and down :)
heres one of mine that was removed

its a bit of a trek for me but as said the chains are not really that hard to do it a case of check then double check then fit the chains then the checking again :)

Worth doing it all in one go then, so what should I expect to pay to do the chain and balance shaft? (not including the cost of PG Tips and Bacon)
