What did I do on my summer vacation?! :)
Did a lot of maintenance on my 90 20V This weekend, that needed to be done.
Timing belt, water pump, Idler bearing. Went well, but when I took off
my old timing belt, it was so cracked and dry, that when I bent over on
itself, it actually broke!!! It wouldnt have lasted another week, Im sure
of it. I only have 62K on the car too, so all you 20V'ers out there with
this mileage BEWARE!!! Also did a 10V water pump timing belt this
weekend, used the same water pump brand, Graf.. they are BOTH making
noise!!! I have to do it all again this weekend!!! :( So when you go for
an aftermarket pump, do NOT get Graf.
Also did exhaust. Do not purchase an exhaust system for a 20V. THey
should be in jail..but instead, they are probably now in Rio.
Did struts and strut bearings etc etc, link rods, bushings blah blah
blah. Front passenger side OEM strut bearing was bent. So when I put the
new straight one on, my alignment got all screwed up. :( THe last
alignmnet obviosly masked the problem. I always wondered why that tire
Valve cover gasket. Not a good thing to do on a 20V car. :) It took about
two hours... No more oozing!! :)
If anyone needs part numbers or procedures, let me know!
