OK stated to take the old exhaust off today, well, most of it fell to bits to be honest Rolling Eyes but I cant seem to get the heat exchangers off, how do you ge to the top nut? Do you have to drop the motor? Ant advice gratefully recieved as I am stuck pale

If I do have to pull the motor I might as well finish the other motor first to save me the work Rolling Eyes

Most of the exhaust nuts were 12mm, but a few of them are 13mm, this makes them too close to the actual pipe to get a ring spanner on them, which is why I gave up and am now going to build the other engine first and just nail it in afro

OK I need to pop over and see nomates as I the crank needs heat to get the coggy bits off so I can put the new coggy bits in afro

Once I have done this I can actually start putting it together bounce
