When Gaz finally got his butt round my house this afternoon we proceeded to change the water pump (which was probably the cause of a nasty sqeeking noise ive been getting) and also the cambelt which Gaz thought was a bit old.
After a few hours of smacking, swearing, mincing, dropping sockets, loosing tools, more swearing, we managed to get the water pump in and the new cambelt on. After seeing it was loose, Gaz tightened it up more and all seemed good.
But when revving it to test it (car is still on axle stands) the revs take much longer to rise up, the car just seems very sluggish to rev.
I mentioned this to Gaz and he thinks that theres MAJOR overfueling, due to the cam timing being out by one or 2 notches. Since Gaz wasnt sure by how much and the fact that he didnt wanna kill my engine, he didnt attempt to rectify the problem (fair play, if my engine goes bang, Gazs head goes bang! )
Could someone confirm that these symptoms (takes ages to rev, sluggish, and a potent smell of petrol when revving) are the symptoms of incorrect cam timing. Im certain neither Gaz or myself adjusted the igntition timing so it shouldnt be that.
Im gonna take it to get tuned up tommoz if possible, so any idea on how much a garage would charge for adjusting the cam timing? Would the cam timing usually be adjusted in a 'Krypton' tune up?
Any advice would be appriciated.
P.S. Cheers Gaz for coming round.
