Ebay don't have delivery vehicles or central distribution centers amazon do, Amazon are offering delivery of goods as a service to customers. Also sellers use both platforms,and dispatch from there premises using Amazon packaging. Not fulfilled by Amazon.

I would want 50 posted for the lot, the discs are the killer on carriage, unless you have a good friend who can use a company account.

How did we manage before pressure washers,,,  :o :o

The ports are usually overlooked, when said person removes the equipment, it's held pressure, so the take it off put caps back on, and don't do a simple test to check it's valves... Bit like newer tyre fitters, have yet to see on do the spit test before putting valve cover on.

I just get the photobucket login page on all of your links. I can't see any of the photos.

A 2.6 has a lower deflection pulley with no eccentric adjustment, so it's fixed. The backplate for tensioner and upper pully is also different from earlier models. The kit you need is a Contitech CT990K2 or similar. The Gates kit is K035453XS.

You can use the earlier versions of most kits but you will need to adjust the eccentric on the lower idler and swap your existing backplate for the one in the earlier kits. Earlier ContiTech is CT990K1 and Gates is K025453XS. Easy to do.

Here's a Quinton Hazel kit which will suit your car. Albeit with adjustable lower eccentric and the backplate will need to be swapped. At 59 delivered it's a bit of a bargain these days.

I follow this with interest but do not understand everything. So my 2.6 Engine number is 08533230 and both upper and lower idlers are eccentric. Kits I used had those as well. Does this mean that I could use kits with fixed lower idler in the future?

 Yes.  Last one I did had, one fixed and one adjustable,  fit belt from crank in anti-clockwise,  use only double white lines,to line belt on crank,ignore all other belt marks, use locking, alignment tools for rest.

Nitrogen at 10-20psi,. Get a squirty bottle with a soapy solution in. Pressure the system, spray joints and condenser with solution,, hay presto bubbles= leak. Check check both ports first.

Ordered some pads and droplinks for the Saab, from Euro, with delivery 50. Then it's mot time next week, so that'll cost me coffees for the Garage when I go up there,lots of abuse.   And the usual dent to my purse.
