I'd agree with that. Ripped out a V6 engine using a Halfords Pro 150 piece kit. The same kit that Trish won at the 1st year party incidentally!:think Never worked on an SEH, so couldn't tell you...
Get a Pro Kit mate, I'm still trying to find something I can't undo or tighten with mine! :bananasmi
i couldnt remember if it was 30mm or 37mm (but that'll be peugeot diesels -i knew it was one or the other).Its 30mm (Drive shaft nuts)
if you're doing a conversion its easier to leave the lot on the subframe. undo strut top mounts, gear linkeage, matrix hoses, fuel lines, throttle and clutch cables, servo vaccuum pipe, abs sensor wires (if its got it), brake pipes, pull through the ecu loom and unplug the round multi plug up the front, exhaust, rad pipes, the mounts from the body then drop the lot. that way you swap the suspension, brakes, engine, 'box, shafts, etc etc all at the same time. saves on splitting ball joints and doing more jobs than you need to. also, hal pro kits are great but you only get a short reach multi-sided 16mm so better to get a seperate hex one to make sure.:Cool2:Got the ECU out, but will need the loom.
The whole engine and box will be going into a 1.6 Cavalier 'Super-Shed' style. Will I need the subframe?
