Dean's S3 Refurb - Engine Out - Part 1

Recommended Posts

Well I've put up with a couple of oil leaks and a water leak for 4 years and it's been choosing the right time and that time is now. Engine out and whilst out refurbish, replace, fix, paint, improve as much as I can. I've read on this forum and the advice is solid that whilst the engine is out get to check other things......so here is my effort. This first picture is the engine and bay as it was. I borrowed a crane from a mate and it was fine for the gearbox but the reach truly wasn't long enough for the engine but we just about managed. Putting back in will be different though so I will need a longer boom for that. Lots of labelling and notes and thank god for digital photography. Loads of work ahead of us.
