On my engine, I can fit my finger between the large water pump hose and the cam wheel. So, it's about 10mm (depending on how swollen my finger is at any given time, from eating salty processed foods :drool: ) :rolleyes:


Travis, that loose wood screw bothered me when I was re-assembling my car. How did you secure it? Toothpick in the screw hole?

BTW,

We all need to thank Travis for sharing all the pictures he has! :cool: :bow:

I took almost 600 pics during my drivetrain refresh, but I hardly ever aimed the camera at the needed component. <sigh>

... getting to those clamps and getting those hoses off when I was pulling it out was the most frustrating part of the whole removal.

F%$K! Gotta go pour another drink....
Yeah that hose is a bi**h. :huh: I still have scars on my arm. I, too, had to turn the upper clamp around after the hose was installed. :no:

So, how much clearance to the cam wheel do you have now that the hose is shorter?
