With all of this encouragement I soaked it all down with penetrant over a few days and decided to have a go at it.

First I put a socket on the cam hex nut and spun the tensioner around a few dozen times with my impact driver. Then I got a three foot long pry bar and off it came. Woo Hoo!

Now I need to get the bottom timing belt pulley off. I am not talking about the water pump belt pulley with the timing mark. I have already removed that. What I am talking about is the belt pulley on the front of the crankshaft with the cogs for the rubber camshaft belt. It does not seem evident to me as to how to remove this thing.

Now, I have to say that I have the official JH shop manual and am none too impressed with that particular publication.

Please, I know this is a painful progress on my part but it is based on a real need to learn these cars intimately as now we have four of them. Yes, four of them, two running and two for parts. I am not kidding.

Let me know if you need any parts.
