Thanks Robert, you may well beat me to it. I have a week before i’m off traveling for work. If I don’t make it by Saturday it will be a November install.

More parts have arrived. A new spoiler wall for the Silver car and a set of front diff driveshaft seals for both cars.

Before I reinstall the engine and transmission on the White car I'm going to replace one front driveshaft and replace all three diff seals and the diff mount rubber as there will never be an easier time to do it.

Many months of work and now the self doubt sets in. Did I tighten every bolt. Will it leak? Is the timing correct. Unfortunately I won't find out for a month as I have to travel for work.

Nice work, hopefully it will be back in the car in time to enjoy the summer.

Thanks. It should be run in by Christmas. I have the other C4 to drive in the meantime if I strike problems. Life is good.

Congrats on hitting the next big milestone !!

Looks great.

Yes, I feel the anxiety of the install and the first turn of the key...

My front left axle nut didn't seem to be accepting the full 339 ft lb of torque so I ordered a new nut.

When I removed the nut I couldn't see anything obviously wrong with the shaft thread or the nut so I refitted it and managed to get it torqued correctly this time. Weird.

The other thing I noticed is that the new and old nuts are different lengths. While the new nut has a lock feature it looks a bit flimsy to take the full torque. Maybe it's just my lack of engineering knowledge.

John, per the instructions that came with mine you are supposed to read it off the top of the black needle. Figure 3 show how to accurately read the Krikit to get the correct tension.

In your photo you would be less than 15kg.

If the instructions are wrong and you are supposed to read the gauge from the bottom of the black needle and your are at 25kg then my other thread was a total waste of time because my alt belt tension is correct.

Heck, just watched a video and you are correct. I’ll go back and re-do it. Thanks.

Bummer. I was hoping I was doing it wrong.

It probably doesn't matter one bit, John, and if I we're not right there doing the same thing I wouldn't have noticed....

On my car, the cylinder temp sensor plug is above the flywheel sensor plug.

Robert, it's quite possibly incorrect as per factory as the car has been through so many mechanics in 27 years. I followed the configuration that was there ex an OPC when I first pulled the engine in 2015. I'll check in the WSM and my other car.

John, I take it all back !

My car had them reversed !!! Wonder who did that?!

I'm looking in the FSM and the crank sensor is above the cylinder head temperature sensor. This is on page 10-103.

Sorry.

One more thing some mechanic did in the previous years this car was serviced...

It's all good. Some of us, like me, don't have years of experience to fall back on so it's good to have challenges on things.

I'd rather have what I'm doing challenged than make a critical error.

BTW: I think we need to start a P fix it errata thread. The power steering pump PM along with questions over torque values need to be recorded somewhere.
