Right, just a quick update with piccys. The crank pulley kit arrived yesterday, and so as the weather was a bit better today I decided to go ahead and fit it and also change the supercharger fluid.
Here is the crank pulley kit before going in:
And here is the old pulley and belt in place:
So then I removed the water expansion tank and radiator fan, which was a bit fiddly but I got there in the end:
And now I have fitted the new pulley over the old crank, it fits like a glove and as you can see there are screws on the inside which are tightened with a number 4 allen key. As per PaulWirrel's advice, I tightened the screws on opposite sides as I went along to try to ensure that the crank pulley is central.
Finally after a bit of a fight and with some help from the dear wife, I managed to get the new pulley belt on and all done!
Final job was the supercharger fluid, very easy. After removing the airbox etc, I located the small hex screw and removed it to let the supercharger oil out:
Using the syringe provided, I removed the old oil, then replaced with the new oil until it overflowed out the screw hole. Reversed the process to put it all back together, clean up the engine bay and done!
Started the car up and all sounds and looks fine. Angel eyes going in tomorrow, so looking forward to that job.
Oh, and anyone who says the old supercharger oil smells like an apes backside is lying...it smells like 100 apes backsides!!!!
Hope this post helps others who are thinking of doing the same modifications. Just going out now to see the results of all the hard work done today, wish me luck. :grin:
