RE: Another danish restoration
Hi
I don't know why I didn't think about that. I always enjoy seeing other AE86's. I'll remember next time :-)

Once again another post with lots of pictures. I always enjoy lots of pictures. I hope you do to.

If you read the earlier post you'll know that my water pump was dead. Since I bought the car back in 2005 I have never actually done any maintenance on the engine besides changing the oil!!! So I decided to give the old 4AGE a good 10 year service.

This would include the following parts being changed:
  • Thermostat
  • Water pump
  • Timing belt
  • Timing idler
  • Spark plugs
  • Valve cover gaskets
  • Spark plug cover gasket
  • Fan belt
  • Distributor cap
  • Rotor
  • Oil filter
  • Oil
  • And finally the front break pads

While changing the parts I alos decided to do some general cleaning of the engine bay.

Leaky water pump. Gotta go.

These are all the nice parts I got. I Bought them in Germany to save about half the money of what it would have cost in Denmark. All the parts fitted perfectly.

The new water pump and the timing belt is installed. Just align the dots and you are good to go. The 4AGE engine manual was a big support to me.

A new and fresh engine bay. Lovely. I also decided to paint the valve covers and polish the home made air intake.
Also the washer and coolant bottle looks like brand new. I used some odorless petroleum to remove some of the old rust protection goo and soap and hot water to remove the rest. I'm really happy with the result.

The car needs to pass MOT by the end of March. Just got the call today. However it shouldn't be any problem now.

My next post will properly be the result of the MOT. Other than that I really don't have any plans on the car right now. I guess I'll just have to drive it around once the snow is gone Cool
