    I understand that they do one, it is stainless from what I know but is stock dimensions so not a performance upgrade. I've never seen one fitted though.

    I think it is different to lower powered galants. It may be the same as the Evo 7 GTA.

    It's mostly through the wheel arch, yes. The tensioner pulley has an offset mounting point, so you loosen the bolt, rotate the pulley and retorque the bolt. Obviously, loosening the bolt can leave significant slack on the belt, so I'd be doing something to hold the belt to the cams during the process.

    All I can see in the members area is EA2, EA5 and EA6. Maybe someone else knows if there are more but I can't see any others.

    This post shows the cambelt with the engine out and the covers off. The tensioner pully is on the left as you look at the picture, between the crank pulley and the rear cam. That pully is attached to a pivot arm - the pivot point is the bolt just below the pulley, with the pivot arm going down and to the left. The hydraulic tensioner is perpendicular to the end of the pivot arm and you...

    If the engine moves back slightly then you can get some slack there. To check everything is okay, I would remove the covers for the whole cam belt and then rotate the crank by hand until the timing marks on the ca sprockets and rocker covers line up. I'd use a small square off the rocker cover as optical illusion can make it look a tooth out when it is way less. Once you have achieved this by only rotating clockwise, then have a look a the hydraulic tensioner. It should have a couple of mm...

    No, but I'd guess not with 7" width and 46mm offset. The face would sit quite far in compared to Evo wheels.

    The main difference years ago, if I remember correctly, was that AMSOIL was fully synthetic with cleaning additives. At the time it was the only SPIII compliant oil that met those criteria. Therefore it could help boxes with tarnished friction plates and it also coped far better with the generated heat.

    Nick Mann replied to a thread Timing Belt Frequency in Engine
    Original UK Mitsy guide was 5 years/45k miles. Then changed to 54k miles. In the southern hemisphere they quote 100k kilometers, so 62k miles. I have seen quite a few cambelts over the years and have never seen one in bad condition after any of those times/distances, so no need to be overly cautious in my view.

    I was told on Facebook to turn to you.

    Now I'm looking for an adapter plate for the legnum to drive the Evo Clutch. Do you know where I can get them from, including the screws, etc.?

    I thank you

    Hi Nick. Just need to pick your brains about auto box oil. Had my Legnum 6 years now. Donít know how old gearbox oil was when bought her but was clean. Iíve done 30k miles since and only changed trans filter every 10k. Am doing major MAJOR service right now. Rebuilding both turbos, cambelt and water pump, new rad and intercooler, wheel bearings, plugs, brake lines, fluids etc including filters. Box oil is now bit dirty so looking to change it. Was going to go fully synthetic but donít know if will suit the box. Will need to drain torque converter anyway as donít want to cut corners so have you any recommendations?

    Hey, just wondering if youíre still making/selling the adapters to use Evo clutches on the vr4 galants. Me and my friend have a 97 galant vr4 and I was wondering if I could get my hands on one of those.

    So finally itís the lash adjusters to source. I have read a lot about how much of an improvement the 3mm holes are compared to the standard 1mm. There seem to be a lot for sale for the 6A13TT that clearly state that they have the improved 3mm holes.

    Do you or anyone you know have any information regarding if there is a
    MD151382 / MD377560 version that has the upgraded 3mm holes. I imagine that it would be worth having those in the long run if they exist!

    I don't know about sourcing in NZ, but in the UK you could do worse than pri racing.
    Remember that different versions of the same engine may need different lashers. The V6-24 and the VR4 use different versions, for example. (6A13 and 6A13TT)

    Hi Nick. I read one of your old comments and I was wondering if you could help me regarding lash adjusters for the 6A13 V6 sport not the 6A13TT?

    I believe the lash adjuster part numbers for the 6A13TT are

    Like you mentioned the V6 sport lash adjuster part numbers are different. They are

    I have sourced the rocker covers gaskets which appear to look the same as the 6A13TT but have a different code. Same with the cylinder head washers that have a different number to the 6A13TT and finally the spark plug seals which share the same code as the TT.
