hi all midlanders
any one took a 3,2 v6 apart as mine is being a night mare to get the bottom exhaust manifold bolts off as they are hidden underneath and me nor the spanner monkey could shift them so ended up with the beasty being left due to being rained off with 2 out of the 3 exhaust manifold bolts loose from the bottom and third you cant get at with the prop in the way and on the other end of the manifond i can get my hand to get under neath because of the steering rod thing.
so anyone round here who has some idea who fancys comeing over to nottingham to help the spanner monkey and me tomorrow as this is my only ride and i have only been carless for a few hours and it is killing me. if i dont get it done tomorrow the spanner monkey cant come back till monday.
