Will try to make it to the cambelt party , just need to know what I'm doing at work (damn shift work >:(!!!)

I'm not a complete mechanical novice , but could do with a bit of guidance :y. and the cam-locking tools [smiley=dankk2.gif] .

What do we need to bring , I'm thinking tool kit , cambelt kit , beers , butties . If we could get a BBQ going that would be great!!!

I agree with Mark's comments, cambelts first, then we look at other jobs depending on time.

I'm happy to be considered an "expert" in most jobs that need doing on petrol models (2.0/2.2 and V6), but I'm not so condfident with diesels.

I have locking and setting tools for the V6, and 2.0/2.2. I have low range torquewrench and all the usual tools.

I WILL be coming, whether it means booking holiday, throwing a sicky.. etc..

And yes, going by how flat out I was all day in Brackley at the last event, the cambelt changers ARE knackered at the end of the day, which has interesting effects when alcohol is added... ;D

Nope, its one of the older ones, as you come onto the estate you stay right and go up the side of the train track as far as you can go, think it was a scrap yard once upon a time

I need 2.0l cambelt kit, water pump, aux. belt.

I have a good kit of tools and can help dismantle, replace, clean etc. Also have low range and upper torque wrenches.

There should be just enough room in my estate for some beers and BBQ food if required.

I'm working on a weekend pass at the moment.  Happy to spanner twirl to strip things down for those that are more cleverer than whot I is.

Would be looking for accomodation but, to be honest, would not trouble me to rough it on a sleeping bag and roll mat somewhere dry.....

Not really needing anything done, just trying to get to the bottom of a misfire thats been bugging me on and off, if time presents itself....

Hi All,

Just like to ask where abouts between Wolverhampton and Telford? It isn't mentioned in any of the threads. I would like to come as the cambelt will need replacing and the water pump as well but would like to know where its being held.

Thanks Paul  :y

i may not be able to do my cambelt now due to being a bit skint, i'll see if i've got the funds to get the kit a bit nearer the time.

i'll still come down, help out and take some pics though :)

i can pm my number to anyone who thinks they might have trouble finding the place off the m54, i'll meet them and they can follow me.

i'm sure you'll all find it ok though but the offer's there anyway:y


oh and what time are we all getting there?

 :)I'd like to come along, see some old & new faces. Still a bit skint after Chrimbo but Telford not too far petrol wise.
   Is this an overnighter so we can drink more than tea?
   If so can i put my airbed down somewhere & snore away happily?
    Can sleep one night in the Mig if need be.
   Are there any cooking/ bbq facilities so i can cook a curry on site?
    My cambelt etc is all fine @ the moment so no need  for help.
    Not much help to others mechanically but prepared to get hands dirty as a spanner monkey/part cleaner etc.
    If you have enough spanner monkeys my time could be better spent on a few free valets. A hosepipe/tap would help initally but i can bring everything else with me. Can bring carvax for hoovering but wo'nt have time to wetvax carpets/ upholstery in one day but could wash & handwax a few plus bring stuff for your blacks/tyres etc. which i'll happily do for free.
    Lastly, could MDTM or another knowledgable member take my car for a quick rag (show no mercy) to let me know of any forthcoming probs. please?
     Cheers, Guy. :y

IF anyone needs a cambelt kit for there 3.0ltr or 2.5 I could possibly help out and get them for you, but won't be able to buy that many. They are the CONTITECH KITS so if you need one then let me know. I can get them for £48 each inc of vat if anyone can't afford the one's from vx at there prices, just a thought like to help out. PM me your car details and I will see what I can do. I work for a motor factors so I can get them no probs.

Does anyone know what the lighting is like in the unit? will we need to bring along inspection lamps? On the subject of bringing I'll be able to provide a large electrical water boiler, disposable cups etc, and the wearwithall to make the essential teas and coffees. Also any other catering equipment that may be required.
It may be an idea that another thread is started to list anything else needed and the people able to oblige

I have a flourescent on a tripod, 2 500w spots on a tripod, and a 500w spot on a short stand. Also a rechargable flourescent.  Plus about 4 leadlamps, though these are 240v and possibly illegal now....

Yup as EP says i should have the power on by the end of the week, the unit does have lighting but they are probably 20 ft up, so bringing inspection lamps will be a good idea ;)

Ey up. Missed this, temporary hiatus from the forum for a few reasons.

 If I can get the Friday off work, I'll hope to be down for the party. I've got mechanical experience, but I'm not confident to tackle a cambelt without someone watching my every move... a good chance to learn, I think.
 Mine's had the belt and kit done, I'd appreciate it being checked, however... and I'm more than happy to pull any other bits of car to pieces. I've got my trolley jack, fat stands, and socket set, if anyone wants me to bring them along... :y

Also I cna bring my Tool box as well so plenty of tools to be going on with. I will need some help or someone to do my cambelt and water pump as I don't have a clue on what to do on a V6 as this will be my first time owning a V6.

ATF check/top up would be cool if possible........

Travelodge, or Brewers Fayre or similar fake Ye Olde type place??

I think EP is sorting something out.

I sent an email to the Premier Inn in Telford asking for a group booking discount, said we wanted approx 7 rooms at £52 and 14 breakfasts at £8, what can they do? Their reply was we dont do discount :( So Timbuks having a look around today ;)

you'll find that a lot of the pubs and guest houses in shifnal are haunted.

naughty nells, the old jerningham arms(now flats) and the row of shops opposite are some of the oldest buildings in shifnal.

there are a few b&b's in shifnal iirc, i'm going to see my old chap the weekend i'll pop into some and get prices etc.

i haven't been in there for a few years but it doubles as a rather small, crap night club.

another option is the hotel on the m54 services which is a 2 min drive from shifnal, £40 a night..

   A:- Curry no probs if required, need a vague idea how many please & can cook beforehand & put microwave in car & "ding" some packet rice if need be.
     B:- This would leave me more time for valets. I can make up a portable kit & get a few done as you lot fix 'em!
     C:- If Bob's BBQ'ing we can leave the curry this time & i'll bring some more Farmshop Lincs. sausages & other bits. (Let me know please).
      D:- I can't afford an evening in a Carvery Chain pub thingy + However much it is for a bed & it's not my thing anyway, i prefer roughing it (ex biker/festival goer) the odd rough night makes a welcome change!!!!
      E:- How do i add my name please? If nothing else i'd like to drive down for the day, say hello & help out. ( No work needed on my car)

At very great risk, I'll say it again. I could, just maybe, perhaps, possibly, bring my caravan which could provide a free (single) bed for some not so lucky chap if required. The problem would be driving back to a pitch after drinking, but no doubt even Shifnal would have some sort of taxi service.
Should this not meet with the omnipotent one's approval,  :D I would be requiring accommodation for the night.

I suppose that would be ideal but it might contravene his tenancy/ ownership obligations, or even local bye-laws, and I wouldn't be prepared to suggest that.

I'm happy to kip in the car outside the unit for a night. I just can't bring myself to pay £45 to go to sleep, i can do that anywhere!
  I could borrow a C*****n but no towbar & it spoils the drive!
    I think it depends on what people want to do after a days cambelting. Is it evening in pub or do we party on site? I've got home comforts @ home but obviously we have to remember it's Timbuks business interests we could be risking, so what's happening in the evening? :)

I'd guess it will be a drink at the place where we are staying  :-/ - obviously there should be taxis etc to get people to alternative accomodation...

I'd really like a "workshop" party if that's allowed. I enjoy doss down type gatherings.As said earlier we all have centrally heated homes to return to, this would be something a little different, would evoke better memories/photos than sitting in a pub which we could all do anytime, besides i don't think any Landlord would appreciate Broocie showing him what A good Malt is all about. The cambelt day is sorted & that's the main thing but surely we can have our own OOF evening afterwards? A hot curry & a drink keeps the cold out, hot tea & bacon butties help in the morning as do water @ toothpaste, + all the saved B&B money. Surely we could live without home comforts for one night?
     Anyway, i'll go with the flow but could somebody add my name to the list please as i don't know how to, but i'll pop down either way.
    Cheers Guy.

To be honest, crashing out on a corner of workshop floor on a rollmat with a sleeping bag would do for me.  Then I could use the cash I would be paying out for the B&B to offset the fuel costs.....  approx 650 mile round trip....  :o   :o

hi guys, is it to late to join this party? Not been a member of OOF for long.
Cambelt is due in about 5k, but i'd prefere to get it done sooner rather than later.
WHAT NEEDS DOING;
Full cambelt kit,Water pump, Aux belt
MY SKILL LEVEL;
not a novice but i've never done a cambelt on one of these before. I'd like to help out (without getting in the way)
I dont mind if i'm just fetching tea's and sarny's

Ok. Looking good now. Might save curry for us rough lads(tight gits) coz the others will be having pub grub. If i'm not cooking daytime i can maybe manage 3 perhaps 4 valets in a day...in out glass, blacks etc.
   I'd like to do this as folks on here helped me but you'll have to fight it out whose cars get done. I'm nominating one & that's Broocies big black beastie 'coz i wanted to "attack" it  @ T' Lakes so now's my chance!!! Can do a couple more though.
  Is Bob doing his infamous bbcatering during the day so i can bring some bits?
    Is it ok with Timbuk for 3 (so far) tight gits to bed down in his workshop....free valet????? 8-) 8-) 8-) :y

I'd like to come along and grill for Britain , in my previously designated role as meat burner supreme :D

currently have no vehicle.......  so it's kind of dependent on me buying something, or getting a lift.....

I'm piss useless under the bonnet because of neck/back , but can cook like a bastard,  and clean throttle bodies and the like....

(Mike (my son)  will probably not be available for such duties, despite his masses of experience , and enjoyment of last year ;) he's gone and got himself a weekend job....   )

of course if i HAVE bought a new Meega or Sintra by then, I'll need to be looking at cam belt and water pump most likely, depending on service history....

Oh and just out of curiousity, given that the plenum on the facelift has to come off, I would assume I will need some new breather seals and will I need to get any seals for the plenum, just to be on the safe side? ::)

I'll turn up anyway with some valeting gear, pre-cooked curry for those of us (if any) are staying on site.
     Is Bob bringing his Barbie? I'll bring stuff if he is.
     Is there running cold water? Tea /coffee & i can't polish a dirty car!!
     Is there power in the unit? i.e kettle & if a few of us are staying over i can unplug the DAB/CD from the kitchen for some evening music, not loud just background, no worries about complaints etc, it won't go that loud honest!!!
     Anyway, not sure what's what yet but i'll turn up & be happy to call it a day meet, stay sober, take some pics & see folks old & new then drive home again.
    No work needed on my car but would appreciate a tech2 if poss

Excluding antifreeze, only other thing you may need is the 6 plenum o rings.  Normally these are OK to reuse, but if they've gone hard, they'll need renewing

No problem, I can bring it if required. Seeing as I'm not a "spanner weilding expert", at least I will be of some use while cars are being worked on. Just gotta find a way of stopping it stinking the car out on the way home!! :'(

I seem to remember someone saying they were going to check the accomodation in the area or are we going to do our own thing? I saw a mention of Naughty Nells in a previous post which looks ok.

Now I have the new baby, I'll defo be coming along....

My "massive" list of jobs is probably limited to

door stay pre-fix.... if required

Brake disks and pads & fluid change

tech2 if the gearbox needs updating.

possibly an oil & coolant change, but we might have done it before then anyway.

Our Gas BBQ won't fit in the omega , But if someone else is bringing one, I'll happily bring gas (let me know what type of Bottle top valve you have ...) and food to cook on it.....  

I have some axle stands and A trolley jack (although not of massive truck stylee)  that might be useful....  given the number of vehicles...

I would have to drive back that night though....   so no problem staying sober and doing pictures etc.

Mumbai again, aren't you the lucky one.

The Singapore A 380 should be in on the 15th March at about 15:35.

Don't hold your breath, it keeps changing times and dates.

I'll turn up anyway with some valeting gear, pre-cooked curry for those of us (if any) are staying on site.
     Is Bob bringing his Barbie? I'll bring stuff if he is.
     Is there running cold water? Tea /coffee & i can't polish a dirty car!!
     Is there power in the unit? i.e kettle & if a few of us are staying over i can unplug the DAB/CD from the kitchen for some evening music, not loud just background, no worries about complaints etc, it won't go that loud honest!!!
     Anyway, not sure what's what yet but i'll turn up & be happy to call it a day meet, stay sober, take some pics & see folks old & new then drive home again.
    No work needed on my car but would appreciate a tech2 if poss
       See you there, Cheers, Guy. :y

No problem, I can bring it if required. Seeing as I'm not a "spanner weilding expert", at least I will be of some use while cars are being worked on. Just gotta find a way of stopping it stinking the car out on the way home!! :'(

I seem to remember someone saying they were going to check the accomodation in the area or are we going to do our own thing? I saw a mention of Naughty Nells in a previous post which looks ok.
Maybe if you got hold of one of those large heavy duty polythene bags, the type setees are delivered in and put the barby in that it may do the trick :y
Some of my container deliveries are sofas, might be able to bring one,see what i can do. :y

there is a few hotels and b&b's around shifnal area but you'll be paying roughly the same where ever you stay.

i know of one b&b in shifnal that charges £45 a night for a single room.
if i get chance at the weekend i'll nip down and find out some more prices.

Right, we will need to be doing at least 3 cam-belts simultaneously in order to get that little lot done in a day (should be do-able).

I would appreciate it if at least one of the ones I get to do is a 4 pot (would make a change!)

Might be worth me doing the idler arm to as I can then demonstrate the '2 hammer trick'.

I suspect other jobs could be done in parralel.........I would love to see everybody leaving with a properly set handbrake but, that might just be wishful thinking on my part.  ;D

I was getting concerned about the amount to do.  I was hoping someone could look at my coolant and smell of burning oil, but that will have to wait until another time  :'(


As an idea, if eveyone gets there early, if MDTM/JV6CDX/Me etc show people what to do, then members strip their own cars down?  Would that speed things up a bit?  Perhaps same idea for handbrake adjust?  Would that improve things speed wise?


Bagsie I don't do the 3.2 ;D, though wouldn't mind seein git done.

Ok no probs. Just thinking about driving up on the Friday stopping over but couldn't afford the two nights so kipping in the car wouldn't be a problem. But will wait for confirmation when Timbuk gets back from Family emergency.

Not knowing the area at all, is there a field nearby that we could persuade a farmer to let some canvas/mobile sheds be used .. most farmers are happy to take a few beer tokens on the side to let a field be used .... :).

This would allow cheap overnighting and avoid any "drink driving" problems on the Saturday night ?

It's an industrial area, just act like a bunch of Gypsies.  :y ;D

mmm probably a no then  :(

but Shifnal on autoroute doesn't look that big a town, perhaps somewhere on the outskirts ??

I'm just thinking if everyone was in the same place Friday & Saturday nice be one hell of a p***up social chat ... :), at the moment it looks like it will get a tad fragmented :(

And I'm still working at trying to get the weekend off ..... :(

there is a few farmers fields on the outskirts of shifnal, it is more of a farming town than industrial.

I have to say that Naughty Nells looked reasonable on the web site but, if we want travel lodges and are willing to share rooms it would help bring the cost down.
Title: Re: Cambelt Party - 23rd Feb 08 - West Midlands
Post by: hotel21 on 05 February 2008, 21:05:29
looks like about a dozen requiring accomodation, according to the list.  Theo and Sheo would be looking for the 4 poster, probably, depends on what else is left for the rest of us!!
Title: Re: Cambelt Party - 23rd Feb 08 - West Midlands
Post by: TheBoy on 05 February 2008, 21:12:52
Naughty Nells has advantage of being close apparently - just as well, as no parking at hotel.

Unless we get somewhere similar to Goole with attached pub, but that was double beds only.  As much as I love you lot, err, no thanks!!!
Title: Re: Cambelt Party - 23rd Feb 08 - West Midlands

I'm not paying Alan Partridge Travel Tavern so if no workshop sleepover be a day run for me. Still get 2 or 3 valets in though. Reckon my gaffer would let me bring the unit down. Bobtail (no trailer) would'nt use too much diesel. I'd be sorted. Bed, night heater, kettle,telly, fridge etc. Only problem is that would knacker my w'end rest period as i'd still have to put 2 cards in so no go.... rather bring the Mig anyway. I'll bring sleeping gear in case.
   However it goes looking forward to it anyway. :y

I'm proposing to bring my 'you know what' and use a 'Thingy' Club CL site (small privately owned, 5 unit max.) just down the road from Shifnal in order to avoid any difficulties for Timbuk with his contractual obligations. If anyone is interested, I could provide one bed inside, and possibly up to 4/6 in a full awning for very hardy characters, although these numbers would have to be approved by the site owner and adhered to. The only drawback
It is close enough to make taxiing a solution to drink/drive problems. If this is of interest, please post here soon as bookings would have to be made. Entwood may also be interested in providing a similar facility if he's able to make it. Anybody else?
Cheers,
Bill.

Title: Re: Cambelt Party - 23rd Feb 08 - West Midlands
Post by: shyboy on 05 February 2008, 21:55:15
Sorry guys. The phone rang and distracted me. Very easy to do!
The only drawback is that if any other people are using the site, noise would have to be kept to a bare minimum, but hopefully we'd just want to go to sleep.

I should find out tomorrow if my attempts to get the weekend off have been fruitful ... if they have then we'll look at the awning/van options then. I don't want to offer something I later have to back out of.

Post by: shyboy on 06 February 2008, 08:59:58
A friendly farmer or similar could provide an alternative as already suggested, but in this day and age security and safety, both of equipment and people, has to be taken into consideration. My days of meting out punishment to louts and vandals has passed at my age, I'm afraid, so I'd be looking for safety in numbers on an informal pitch. Let's see what the feelings are.

Working till 4pm Saturday, so can't make it then. Was hoping to have a chat about this at J.O. 5 but due to other commitments I can't make that one.

What time on Sat please? Booked friday off work to enjoy a lunchtime drink so ok to drive Sat.am. Will valet as many as i can on sat. Will there be time to tech2 mine? Dunno how long this takes. As said would appreciate a more knowledgeable member taking mine out for a quick thrash (best doing that on your own) just so i know if owt needs doing soon.  Also busy as i'll be with valets i'd appreciate a quick blat in a 3.0/3.2, i'll be drinking tea all day & can produce ins. for other vehicles or am happy to be taken for a drive as a passenger if you don't want me to drive your car but i want to feel first hand the difference between the 2.5 & the 3.0/3.2. Not top end just acceleration, mid range pull.

Hopefully I can be first in? ;) ;) If not I can wait till my turn. I am bidding on a V6 timing locking kit so there wiil be another kit  to use if I win it.

Might it be useful to have a roll call on essential tools. I know some have been mentioned earlier,

Jacks
ramps
axle stands
oil collection trays
waste oil drum!
Locking kits
generator if 240v not available!
compressor
grinder
inspection lights
gas torch!
Omega seat pad for kneeling on
cleaning bath
bulk buy carb cleaner

I would also recommend that people bringing their tools make an effort to identify them to ensure that we all go home with what we came with.

If someone from the Swindon area is going I have a 2 kW generator you guys can borrow as I can't make it. It has 2 x 13 amp UK sockets.

I am normally loath to lend such items, but I'm sure I can trust you guys ...???

Hire of a genny from say, GAP, is roughly £70 for a week plus diesel.

If we were able to get 110/240 lighting then we have the power required for the weekend for minimal outlay particularly if, for example, a nominal fee was asked for to cover hire and fuel??

I have a small propane gas jet heater but does need 240v for the fans.  No probs bringing that, if needed.  By the sounds of things, it may well get cold in there....

I could potentially borrow a little 700 watt jenny. Would do for lighting.

I also have a 1KW inverter.

The welding jobs are going to be a challenge with a generator, IME ::)

Those building style ones generaly use a tow loop!

We do need a 2KW one if we want to do any welding!

I'd go for something bigger than that.

The "support truck" we take on kit car tours has a 130 amp welder and a 3kVA petrol generator and as soon as you strike an arc the generator practically stalls. It just doesn't have enough momentum to cope with the transient nature of the load. You can only weld in little splats at a time, no matter what current setting you use. Last time the need arose we connected a couple of car batteries in series and just used the welder as a wire feed device. :o

I'd go for something around the 5kVA level and preferably diesel because they have much larger flywheels!

Hi all,
Just to let you all know I have just bought the v6 cam locking tool kit so hopefully it will arrive before the 23rd. If it does then there is another kit available to use if someone needs to use it so it could make make 5 cars to be done all at the same time?

I'm sure one of the guy's that know's how to do the V6 can use it, unfortunately I don't. Is this useful to you guy's, does this help? I also have some twin site lights as well (240 volts) hope this helps as well.

Paul  :y
P.S I may have made myself skint by doing this just might not have enough for the hotel accomadation SOOOOOOO can anyone put me up for the night? PLEASE  ;) ;)

I've re-read the list and he's down for work, and accomodation needed.

If I can make contact with him and sort it out I'll see if he wants to borrow the genny.

Might it be useful to have a roll call on essential tools. I know some have been mentioned earlier,

Jacks
ramps
axle stands
oil collection trays
waste oil drum!
Locking kits
generator if 240v not available!
compressor
grinder
inspection lights
gas torch!
Omega seat pad for kneeling on
cleaning bath
bulk buy carb cleaner

I would also recommend that people bringing their tools make an effort to identify them to ensure that we all go home with what we came with.


Car ramps x 1 set
Axle stands x 2 sets
Tool Box x 1
Breaker Bar x 1
V6 Cam locking Kit x 1
Torque Wrench x 1 (lbs ft/kgm)
Impact Wrench for Wheels x 1
Alloy Wheel sockets x 1
Twin Site Lights x 1

If anyone HAS a waste oil drum then I'll bring my oil and filter as well. I can find out how much for a box of carb cleaner is from work (staff discount alway's come in handy)

Perhaps I should clarify; sensors/control box/buzzer are all fitted, just need wiring to earth/reverse connected....

Shouldn't be a problem.

Might it be useful to have a roll call on essential tools. I know some have been mentioned earlier,

Jacks
ramps
axle stands
oil collection trays
waste oil drum!
Locking kits
generator if 240v not available!
compressor
grinder
inspection lights
gas torch!
Omega seat pad for kneeling on
cleaning bath
bulk buy carb cleaner

I would also recommend that people bringing their tools make an effort to identify them to ensure that we all go home with what we came with.


Lastly, chemical toilet ordered and gennys supposedly.  ::)

I will bring some plastic bucket type containers which can be used to keep removed parts together, or, if someone wants to bring a decent handsaw, can be cut down to make excellent waste oil trays if needed. I'll bring a funnel so that old oil can then be transferred into the empty oil cans if we don't have a large waste container.
They will also make good cleaning buckets.
And WCs I suppose.  :-?
And, no, I won't be taking them home with me.  :D  :D

I really need to know if there's a tap to put a hose on, or if no hose is there running water for buckets to wash & rinse. Looks like my mate can attend. He's got a machine buffer that can take out minor scratches, got flatting paper for slightly heavier stuff.  Really hoping to tidy some cars up as others are fixing. Will need a power supply but got a 50mtr ext lead so we can stay out of eachothers way, ...& run carvax. (dry only, no time for wet!). ::)

Hi everyone. I saw this thread very early when it started but almost forgot about it as i had to move house and all the rest of it.

Do you guys know somewhere I could buy my cambelt kit so that I receive it by the end of the week, just in time? What about $tealer$, any good on price?

I also need to change my front wheel bearing. Anyone's got a long breaker (1m or so)? more importantly where to get the bearing in the last minute? ... yeah, i know i'm always like that :(

I could bring in pair of axle stands, a tiny jack and my small set of handy tools. Also have experience of changing the cat, brake pads/discs and wiring up an amp/cutting parcel shelf (for 6x9s) on new shapes if someone needs to.

one last q, what sort of time r u looking to start the day and are there still nearby accommodation available? could we camp in the place in a sleeping bag?

tnx and see you all soon :)

There will be 2 Tech2's at the meet.

You can get the cambelt kit here:

https://sslrelay.com/buypartsby.co.uk/timing-belt-kit-info.php?recordID=6721

And if you give them a call they can also provide the front hub assembly plus you need a water pump and antifreeze....
Title: Re: Cambelt Party - 23rd Feb 08 - West Midlands
Post by: Harison213 on 19 February 2008, 14:57:28
Thanks for the quick response. I think the front hub doesn't need any other parts (replacement for disposables, etc.)?

Also do you think I would need to change the water pump? The car has done about 65k now most of which (since 28k which it was when I bought her last year) is motorway. If yes, would it be nice to change the thermostat as well?

tnx.

there's a couple of b&b's in shifnal, the motorway services hotel j4 m54 about 2 mile outside shifnal or you could book into the international hotel at telford like a lot of people have done already :y

i think the first people will start getting there at about 8am.


Oh and if anyone needs a lift to the international hotel at the end of the day then i'd be happy to run you up there.
Then you can have a few beers and leave the cars at shifnal :y

TB is the cambelt kit the same as the 2.0ltr for the 2.2ltr? If so then I have a spare 2.0ltr cambelt kit here if someone needs one.

Got all the stuff to do:

N/S bank camcover
Passenger door check-strap repair plates (drivers too but probs not needed)
Carpass for sorting the remote (if i have enough pennies)

Might also have a look at the lock solenoid for the passenger door to while sorting the checkstrap as it will all be stripped down anyways :)

Not got many tools... there all iggledy-piggledy in the garage and its like a mission just to get through the door!

Will be bringing my crappy SLR too so to get a few piccies :)

Ok. Work threw 2 nights out at me & i can't afford a Lappy.
   My sprayer mate is 99% coming so ONE car only will get the FULL machine polish jobbie. So far it 's looking like TB's infamous Tractor 'cos it's running at the moment & sounds like it needs it!!!
   (your words Jaimie) Otherwise bringing full valeting kit, carvax, hosepipe & enough cloths & cleaners to give anyone standing around a job. I've seen a few offers of valeting help (thankyou). We can get a few others washed, handwaxed, hoovered, shuts, glass, blacks etc. more help = more cleaned Migs. With all the mech work i reckon it'll be a productive day! :y

Just to let you V6 cambelt changers know I now have my locking kit, arrived yesterday (19/02/08) so we should have enough cambelt locking kits to use. IF and its a big if, if I cant get my radio working by the time Saturday comes round then is there someone that know's about these things could help with sorting it out? as this will be very helpful to get going as you all know no sounds in the car tends to be a bit teadous at times.

correct. when you get the image on google earth, Timbuks place is the big green unit closest to the(now not there) scrapyard.

I just received my order and autovaux kindly decided to send 1x5l of antifreeze as they didn't have 3x1l (which i'd oredered) in stock. This means i'll have some 2l spare to share  :y

122.5 miles from door to door. 2hrs 34 mins.
Thats roughly the same distance to my brothers house in Burton-on-Trent so should  just use about 12 litres of fuel.

If no-one has one I'll buy one in the morning from a Stealer and bring it along to fit (if there's space, no worries if not).

Ok . all valeting gear packed. The tractor will be the only car to get the full machine polish. After that Bobs est will be done 'cos he's BBQ'ing again so he deserves a valet. From then on those who are on the spanners fixing others will take priority. Don't know how many we'll get done but more help means more clean cars.
