Hi, As the subject says, I'd like some help and info on changing the main bearings on the 4 pot. Actually, you could say this is an appeal to Harvey to share his experience in a bit more detail but to quote from a previous thread that for some reason was under 'electrical' - probably because of oil pressure, Harvey said: I was chatting to Hermione149 this evening and we can't get our head around the rear mains, because the crank is surely held firmly by the gearbox - how do you create enough wiggle room to remove/insert the bearings? So, please Harvey, for the benefit of us all, to contradict the Haynes book of Lies and the workshop manual, and make my life easier this winter when I HAVE to tackle the job, can you give me the "janet and john" version as a novice mechanic. If I get enough information, and enough nerve to bite the bullet and tackle the job, I'll photograph it and put it in members projects AND P6 News! that's a promise. Thanks, Brian.
