I watched that.  The cambelt looked scarily loose.  Wonder if it still has 16 straight valves

Unlikely based on the most recent video 😬

Perhaps my memory is fading but I thought that the dots /markings (ex and in) on the pulleys are not in the same place on the two sides, so if you align the dots on the shaft side they are out of line on the bulkhead side. In that video they seem to align based on the shaft side. Perhaps I'm mis-remembering since it has been a few years since a belt on an Esprit (Excel is so much easier due to access).

The dots are in the same place front to back but the IN and EX are not, so it depends on which cam it's going on.

That shows just how many years since I looked at the wrong side of the sprockets.


The only reason I knew this was after a week of sleepless nights staring at Vernier and stock pulleys wondering whether it was all going to go bang in spectacular fashion.

It would only take 2 mins to tweak that left headlamp pod!

Yes, the owner said he will be doing that. The weather up here has been very cold and damp, so not ideal for messing about in the garage.

And I suppose sunny days are better off spending driving. The weather is turning cold again from tomorrow for at least a week.

A completely normal day in the English countryside, with absolutely nothing out of the ordinary happening - peacefullness and calmness as always, with two typical English blokes having made a bet over a pint at the local pub, on who is going to reach work from home first, each using his preferred means of silent, quiet and meaningfull eco-friendly transportation to complete the task at hand, as it would happen on any given day... Proof given that not even a local cow bother turning it's head or even lift an eye, and local fishermen doing their daily job without any disturbance.

Carry on.
