I recently bought a 75 CDT 02 Tourer with 118 k on the clock as a bit of a project...so far so good it had already had before I bought it a new MOT, 4 new tyres,alternator,starter motor and battery. the bodywork isn't the best part of the car but ive managed to source a new wing to replace the damaged one on there pretty cheaply and the rest is really just time and effort cutting the paint back.
What I thought was a crankshaft pully de-laminating turned out to be the auxillary belt tensioner having worked loose allowing the belt to basically just flap about so that was a result.
Ive ordered service items ready to fit on the weekend and I have a few questions....
The oil sump plug looks to be just about accessable without axel stands is this possible?
Does the filter housing undo anti-clockwise?
Would 10/40w semi synthetic castrol GTX be OK as I have some from my last car and how much?
Is the fuel filter self priming or is it better to fill the new filter with derv before refitting?
And lastly the clutch is heavy although there's no excessive travel or shudder...is this just how they are?
