Started work on stripping my XE I've had laying around for the last 6 months!
It all went fairly well and we didn't encounter too many probs. We haven't been able to get the bloody crankshaft bolt out tho. The thread is well and truely knackered too. Tried chiseling and everything. Will have to leave that one to the machine shop.
Just out of interest tho, that E20 bolt does undo anti-clockwise doesn't it?
Now its all in bits I can order parts in and get things sent away so the engine can start taking shape to be inserted about March.
Next step is to remove the existing engine from the nova. Me and my mechanic (dad) have both got all week off so as soon as we've got a nice day we'll set to it. The cat can then go to the bodyshop for a new front panel, jigging and bay resprayed, Again, should all be done for march ready for Combe
