    I'm sure power tools cut the time on half, but

    the time I did it I removed everything hood, radiator, fan, belts, loose the ac compressor, alt, ps pump dist., etc, and I still did have trouble with R&R of the timing belt...I would like to see the master at work or next time you do it please video it. I did go to the car and try to picture how you did it, but no luck.[/IMG]

    Yes siree.........................................

    For starters, dont remove the hood, radiator or lower engine shield.
    Yes, I do use air tools, this saves a lot of time, especially on the lower crank pulley bolts. I like to remove the kidney grills and the hood hinge on the right so I can move the hood forward to get more access. Doing them several hundered times also helps get a system in place too.
    I can do a 528e in about 15 minutes, a 325e in 20 and a 325i in 30.
    I did Scotty's T-Belt "and" waterpump in just under an hour while explaining things to him.

    If he leaves let me know instantly.

    It was a big mistake I made.
    Good to hear you and family doing well. Be nice to see the bug going as well.

    Good, it only takes 25 minutes to do any way...... least when I do it.
    Been good, still at the same place under the same rule. Techs and writers leaving left and right, imagine?
    "Someone" has their resume up at Linkaden (sp?)Google my position at our place and it comes right up, crossing fingers.
    Doing our last of year of Jr's with our youngest, gonna miss it. Trying to get the green beast going again for Bug In 36 by May 1st, put the N600 off to the side for now, a real PITA with parts.

    HAHA! No but its getting one anyway.

    The car is pretty nice. Black on Black. The wife wrecked the pretty 528e. Hit ice and went off the side of a mountain. Went down 150 feet. Her and the daughter walked away without a scatch. Amazing.
    So then we found this car. How have you been?

    Het all. I picked up another 325es. Need parts

    . I have the M Tech front spoiler and need a left brake duct. the part number I have is 51 71 1 942 967. The pic is not what I have so I am wondering if somebody has a pic of the brake cooler ducts. And what lower engine cover is supposed to be on it. Thanks.
