The belts are due on the GTV within the next 6 months so I decided that if I was ever going to have a go and dismantle and rebuild a V6, now is the time! It's also handy that Chris lives 15 mins up the road and has kindly said he'll lend a hand when needed
I have a bit a technical know how. I stripped and rebuilt an A Series engine from my Mini while I was at uni and fixed a head gasket failure (twice - don't ask.....) on my fathers old Vauxhall (Opel) 1.3 OHC Astra a few years ago, so I'm not completely incompetent.....
I'll try and take as many photos as I can but please don't expect the quality of the threads I mentioned above!
So to start....after ring and emailing dismantlers and scrapyards for a few weeks I found something interesting at Autolusso. It was a CF2 3L V6 from a GTV, described as having mayonnaise for oil but it wasn't knocking when run.
Gambling on the fact that not too much damage has been done, it's now in my garage or
I must be mad!!
