My valve cover midway

My valve cover midway through getting wirebrushed all the hell before I paint it, still looking for the paint I wanna use:


Should I be concerned about this exhaust manifold or try to clean any of that stuff out?

Yeah I would clean out that

Yeah I would clean out that exhaust manifold. That looks really gross and could clog up the cat if it ever breaks loose.

Just use some compressed air, or compressed water, or brake parts cleaner, or anything!

I'll pick up some brakleen

I'll pick up some brakleen when I go to the parts store to get a big drain pan for my anti-freeze,

Anyway, what resistance should I be looking for on spark plug wires to see if I need new ones or should I just buy them regardless?

Mini How-To 1: Removing the

Mini How-To 1: Removing the Crank Pulley Bolt

Well, you need to get this off to get to the timing belt, so here we go...

Put two flywheel bolts back in the holes opposite each other. Rotate the engine so that they are parallel to the ground. Take a 2' 3/8" extension and put one end through the two bolts and the other end on the ground so that it will resist the turning of the crank. Then get out your 2' breaker bar, get it on the crank pulley bolt, brace the engine with your left arm while you load the break bar to where the crank no longer spins through flex of the extension on the ground. Take your feet and get on the breaker bar, with your weight evenly balanced, and bob up and down while still bracing the engine until the bolt squeeks loose. It's only torqued with 115ft/lbs, after all,

Estimated time: 3 minutes
