1996 Geo Tracker, 1.6 , 4x4 auto
I just finished with one. not too bad, if you find a good machine shop
that stupid gasket is really easy to flip and not realize it.Last 1.6, that I over hauled, was about 23yrs ago and is still running.. was supper cheap in those days, took me 2 days, in/out.. decked the head with sand paper/emery cloth on plate glass.. hand lapped the valves/seats.. hand filed the mains..
I was much younger and moved a lot faster..
I did it with a daughter (yes, all my girls had broken nails and dirty hands) who had the HG changed and mechanic installed the HG backwards, cutting oil supply to the upper..
I also much prefer paper in my hands - if for no other reason than I don't want to get my tablet or laptop all greasy in the shop. 😁 The factory manuals are LONG. Lots of pages, way more than I was willing to print. What I pretty much always do if I have an electronic copy of a manual is print the pages I need for the task I'm working on at the time. When I'm done, they're probably oily enough that they need thrown out anyway. What I SHOULD do, but am never patient enough for, is put the pages I've used in a binder. Eventually I'd probably have printed and bound most of the factory manual. I'm just not that clean/organized in the shop.I can’t stand reading stuff online. Is there anywhere to get a paper copy?
Guess I could just print it all out.
