Agreed, I'd love a hand with that. I've already done the venturi delete, and that wasn't exactly straight forward.

Just figured I'd mention...the NAPA Discount cards I was handing out are good for tools as well as parts, not yo mention fluids/etc. Let me know if you want one, as I still have a good stock unhandy at all times just in case I run into someone from the Speedway events!

Thanks, I grabbed one off you for just that reason. NAPA in the states is currently having a 70% off sale on many of their tools as they're switching suppliers, is there something similar happening here?

Fuel rail and intake are off, next steps - belt covers, cam cover, flywheel lock the engine at TDC and the head comes off.

Tools for the work last night:



Nothing too different here from last time. A couple of plain raised panel US Craftsman ratchets in 3/8 and 1/4. Used a Lisle 3mm allan socket for the hex bolt on the distributor rotor and a 6 mm for the intake bolts. Lisle tools are great, US made, affordable and they make many automotive specific tools. The big Gearwrench ratcheting wrenches (22 and 24 mm) were for the fuel rail connection at the damper. They are from Canadian Tire, they come in a set of 4 for $110 but go on sale a couple times a year for under $40. They only ever advertise the SAE set so you have to ask for Metric, but at that price its a great deal, you're basically getting the ratcheting box end as a bonus.

I believe we may, although working in the warehouse, I don't see/hear much on prices, I DO know that we're doing a major racking revamp to accommodate a bunch of new lines...so I'm sure that it may be the case!

This morning me and my son took the belt covers off while my daughter was having a nap. Also set the engine to TDC, pulled the cover off the cam sprocket, released the timing belt tension and pulled the belt off the sprocket. Next the cam box comes off, then the head.

Tools for the work this morning:



In 1/4 drive I used a breaker bar, flex head ratchet and finger ratchet to get the bolts off the belt covers.

Couple of 17 mm wrenches to release the tensioner bar off the alternator. Used a belt lever to get the alternater belt off the pulley.

Big Craftsman 3/4 drive ratchet and a Proto 24 mm socket to turn the engine to TDC. The 3/4 Craftsman ratchet is pretty coarse, 36 tooth I think, but tough as hell. I don't use 3/4 drive stuff that much, so I just bought a cheap set of Princess Auto 3/4 drive impact sockets and filled out the missing sizes I commonly need with higher quality used Proto sockets.

The pin wrench is a special tool made by ArnnWorx for the 944 it lets you hold/release/apply tension to the timing belt tensioner while working the locking nut with your other hand (that's what I used the 13 mm saltus wrench for). The nice thing about the ArnnWorx tool is that its much cheaper than the factory tool alternative. It comes in a set with a few other handy special tools for the 944, all US made.

Jeebus, I could only dream of having a tool set like you! And the ability to remember what/where/when each is/was manufactured is something I haven't encountered before! That's dedication! Shall I also presume that you also take care/pride in maintaining your tools by cleaning them before putting them away as well? (Even if it's just a 2 second wipe with a rag?
