    Cambelt Change

    Hi guys long shot i know but worth a try.

    I'm soon to get all the parts to change my cambelt not doing it myself but would like to watch/assist someone who knows how to. I dont fancy asking the garrages who i usually use as noone likes a 'customer' watching them work paying em £50 an hour. I dont mind paying but does anyone know of anybody in the North West that would be up for it?

    I had an escort MK3 years ago and use to do all the repairs and servicing apart from the cambelt in case i messed it up. Anyway cash was a bit tight but i saved for Lucas garage to do the cambelt change for me. (let the proffessionals do the tricky/important bits ), went to pick the car up and while driving home i heard this noise that wasnt there before and sounded like some thing was flapping around under th bonnet when the engine was revered slightly when pulling away from traffic lights. So when i got home i popped the bonnet and suprise suprise the noise was coming from the cambelt cover. Engine off i remove the cover only to find that i could literally pull the cambelt off with my fingers, to say i was horrified was an understatment. long story short the area manager visited me refunded me got it sorted and gave me some free servicing vouchers as a gesture (which i never used) just thought i would tell my tale.
