    Noisy front suspension

    Thanks Cobraboy, pin is definitely loose in the Calliper. The pads are Greenstuff pads I fitted 5 or six years ago and they have been great, no squeal at all and brake well. Seems worse on passenger side but present on drivers side too.

    Noisy front suspension

    Found it! How do I fix it? Took a video but no idea how to post it. Basically the pads are moving up and down on the two pins they travel along and making the clonk noise, they have the anti rattle plate in etc. Any ideas? Will try and post the video somehow.

    Possible head off

    Hello All, Me again, head back on sounds good except the timing chain seems to fouling into the chain guide bolt! Have got a new top tensioner got the old one off, the new one has the oil way attached (looks bigger) the old one has left it behind in the head, any suggestions on how to get it...

    Thanks yet again Harvey, the timing was way way out at the start of all this.

    Possible head off

    Hello All, Bit of a head scratcher. Head all done and being bolted back on, timing chains were locked etc, previous mark on pulley wheel (tipex) actually lines up with number 4 being top dead centre but lines up on camshaft, the pulley wheel has been cleaned, and the original manufacturers Mark...
