Started vacuum filling the cooling system.
Preparing for the fire up.
After wearing the ear plugs in case the security alarm triggered, re-connected the
battery that was on battery conditioner from the start of the service.
As reported earlier, there was a trace of repair at the battery holder bracket and
as expected, I had to stop tightening the holder as it started to bent at the place
where it was repaired.
Although it is enough to hold the battery for the time being, please replace the
bracket in the near future.
Fired up the engine and warmed it up in preparation for the compression check.
In the process of compression check.
#1cyl: **5, #2cyl: **5, #3cyl: **8,
#4cyl: **0, #5cyl: **2, #6cyl: **0
Happy with the result.
As reported earlier, the TH butterfly was really dirty.
Decided to clean it for the owner as I don’t want to see idle rpm issue after
Applied silicone grease to the new rubber seals at the IG coil covers.
So, almost all of the parts are now back in place at the engine bay.
Will adjust the coolant level after the test driving session and reset the ECU.
Ideally, wanted to finish painting the drive shaft joint but ran out of time
so had to stop for the day.
Considering the other project, looks like I need to work over the weekend again…..
Only one proper day off so far this year…..
