    Hi guys
    Just wondering if I can install new clutch cable in my bus while the engine is out ? Gearbox is still in so it should be ok shouldn’t it ? And just one more novice question , do I put heat exchangers on before or after I put the engine back in ?
    Cheers

    clutch cable can go in at any time but you won't be able to adjust it until after the engine is in

    the heat exchangers can be before or after..they don't get in the way.... for clearance reasons it's usually easier to put the heater risers on later.

    There is no reason that you cannot fit the cable unless you like being a martyrr and doing it the hard way in fact it will be a lot easier to access.

    Either way.
    Don't forget to anneal the copper gaskets.

    Just nip the head stud bolts and sit exhaust in place before you do the nuts up tight .
    Doesn't always align first time.

    Big "Mutha dumpy hammer" fixes everything and aligns whatever isn't with multiple whacks.:rolleyes::rolleyes:
