Re: oil level when fitting an external oil cooler

As Jim says pre-fill the cooler before you attach the pipes, if you’re running an external filter do the same with that, then if it’s a standard sump it’s 2.5 litres give or take to fill the engine, but should be fine to start it up and check the level, if it’s a stock dipstick it’s 0.5 litres betwe...

Hi,

Another photo for you. I think it's a little better in some areas but I'd have to work on the lighting to hope to get it any better. So I'm afraid that's it for now.

Thanks

The distributor drive has no effect on where the pistons or valves sit, so won't affect it at all. Timing is still referenced to TDC. The drive being out of line will only give yo...
