Round III with a Boxer
After all the work, we finally got to the timing belts, the reason for
the engine out service. With new timing belts, we're also replacing the
lower pulley bearings. The water pump housing will come out to change
out the WP seal, oil seal, and bearings.
This car had a couple of oil leaks, and a main leak was coming from the
shifter linkage. With the main shift shaft removed, the little o-ring
could be fished out and replaced.
The o-ring was pretty brittle and it was no wonder oil was leaking out
past this seal. Unfortunately, when the replacement came in the mail,
it was the wrong size! The fit of this o-ring is pretty precise, so I
didn't want to throw any o-ring we had in our stock into the gear box,
so we're waiting for this tiny little part to arrive so we can continue
with the job. As always, it's a tiny part like this that can stall a
major job like this for days!
We cleaned the engine compartment to ready it for the engine to go back
in. New fuel pumps were installed, since one of them was causing issues
with the fuel injection, and new fuel lines were also installed.
The insulating tins were also cleaned and polished a little to make
everything nice. Now, we wait for parts!
