As a couple of you know, I had my timing belt slip off. Well I finally got it back home and after some time I got into it yesterday to check the timing and compression.
I reset the timing (crank pointed to bottom and cams pointed to each other). No start. I then checked the compression in cylinder one and four. No pressure. So pretty much I think I have issues (duh!). I can move the engine by hand I don't feel any jamming. So I think I might be able to do a head job and hopefully my pistons are ok. If not I can replace it.
So before I go down this path I need advice on the best way to proceed.
1) should I pull the engine entirely ( I would replace the clutch)
2) Or work with in the car
My biggest concern is removing the exhaust header. The bolts and nuts are pretty much rusted shut. Once I get into that I bet those bolts are going to snap.
So guys who have done this job, advice? I should be able to pull the top end by removing the exhaust, intake headers.
