Thanks all for the feedback:
Pulling the heads probably next saturday, after that and a lot of cleaning i hope i can start putting the new stuf in. Depends on what i will be facing.
I have already purchased this stuff:
From a local Dutch supplier:
- Belt
- Waterpump
- Motormounts

From Roger at 928rus:
- Engine Gasket set.
- PKTensior
- Vacuumhose kit
Hope i don't run into the surprises as described by Bob. Otherwise i will start looking at Greg's stuff.

The only surprise would be if you do not run into "surprises".

When we had my engine out and apart the biggest "surprise" was corrosion on the water jacket. Nothing on the top of the cylinder chimneys or the cylinder heads as typically found but on the inboard side of the outer wall there was a patch of corrosion that we tried to deal with to stop it progressing. On a 40 year old motor you will be very fortunate if the problems are minor but for sure you are doing the right thing pulling it and inspecting it.

Just be careful what you use to clean. Do not use scotchbrite pads anywhere inside the engine. If you plan to clean the piston heads,use the search function and read carefully. Even Simple Green will pit aluminum so be very careful.

Interesting how loose the belt can be on a 220hp engine and still runs. I would have kept the stock tensioning system.
