    Hi All
    Just finished taking engine out of Kate, needed to get petrol fillers sorted and clean up the bay also need carby rebuild, just wondering if there was a bit of to do list I should follow whilst I have the opportunity now that it’s out? Any ideas and advice would be greatly appreciated, especially if you’ve been there done that and thought of things after you reinstalled, cheers

    Agree with all the above posts.
    Esp front engine seal.
    Clutch & flywheel as posted.
    Anything to do with fuel tank esp if you don't have the KC access hole fix to the fuel sender.

    All the little elbows of rubber going to carbs & fuel tank vent & that one in the filler neck connecting to tank.
    Do enough work to avoid engine out for another 100,k;)
    Oh & the steering wheel & everything aft of that:p.
    Cheers

    If it’s a 2 ltr, I’d be having a good look at the alternator.....they are a bitch to replace with the engine in.....
    When I did mine, I realised how much easier it would have been when the engine was out.
    (It was done roadside, at home....no workshop here ! )
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Cool thanks everyone, list is getting bigger =wallet getting smaller, glad I’m in no rush but would rather get it done once and right, taking out firewall there was petrol marks on tank side so happy she’s not a burnt out shell, I’m sure I’ll have plenty more questions as this is my first time tackling this , stoked you’re all out there and willing to help in anyway you can, thanks
