Hi Alan,

These are not designed to be salvaged/re-used, so you can just pull it off the top of the valve guide.

But if you really want to re-use them, then you could buy something like this:

Thanks mike.

i adapted a pair of long nose pliers and got them off, but damaged a few, so its going to be a new set anyway.

I have not found anywhere that lists the torque settings for big ends, mains, head bolts etc.

I know there isnt a haynes manual,

Is there a link to the factory workshop manual somewhere

thanks again

Thanks for that mike,

great help,

i have been advised to install a 36-1 trgger wheel in place of the factory pick up on the front pullet as the 36 tooth will be more accurate

has anyone else done this, with any noticable difference?

That was exactly what i thought.

However the same source said there was no performance or economy difference in having the injectors firing sequentially as opposed to batch firring.

But if the ecu has the capabillity, one might as well employ it Yes or no?

Another 'expert' was trying to convince me to use a pectel ecu,(
