I hope to get this little lot back together tomorrow, but knowing my Mrs, she will change my name to "can-you-just" and finish up giving me a load of other non essential jobs. ....

Wish me "and my aching back" luck !

I forgot to add. .. The one bad thing about mighty auto's is that it's a pain to move the crank to top dead Centre. .. I've had to use a chain oil filter removal tool around the crank pulley. Un1 manual owners can laugh with joy that they can just Wang it in gear and move the car forwards. .

revenge will be the arthritis on the left knee in old age. .... Well I hope not :)

I'll shut up now and go for a beer.

Looking very good there Nick. Looks like everyone is getting their Ds resurrected at the moment :D

I have this to come on my D as it needs a new waterpump, so it will be a case of 'while i'm in there' :roll:

Looking very clean and tidy in there AB! How much adjustment did your valve clearances need, if any?

Rejoice rejoice she's back together and running :)

I also replaced the vac pipes with the silicon set I only bought 4 years ago!

Jez:
Cylinder 4 inlet was 0.05 widened
cylinder 3 4 6 exhausts 0.05 widened
If I could do it againdI'd set the exhaust valve clearances to 20 instead of 25 as they do sound slightly tappety. Maybe I'm splitting hairs because I did the timing belt on mrs t v6 vectra turbo diesel and I'm comparing that newish engine to this one.

I now have a set of fully tested injectors, silicon hoses and a volvo distributor. It does Rev nice.

I'll give it a fettle tomorrow as I need to tidy the garage and tools away before my ocd kicks in and my back gives way.

I thoroughly enjoyed working on the old d though as I didn't have pressure of not finishing it at the weekend. :thumbsup:
