Crank bolt never come loose after torquing up on mine, used a new bolt and a decent torque wrench to do it up. Too tight and risk snapping, or stretching f**k out of the bolt

Not had an issue with camshaft nut coming loose, 30k since doing the belt. I don't think it will cause issues unless its been removed to change cam seal, if removed new nut and torque to spec

Annnnnd she’s all fresh with MOT ?

Drives much better on the new suspension and brake peddle feels lovely again.

One advisory was a worn passenger side lower arm bushes though..slightly annoying as I was going to put new lower arms and track rods on while it was all apart - but I thought against it as I didn’t want to overspend on the car if anything major popped up on the MOT. Now my first official MOT is done with the car, I know what the next stages are now, to progress as a brilliant daily.

So far the car has had:

.New genuine Bosch glow plugs
.Full service
.New Battery
.4 new tyres
.2 front shocks/springs/top mounts
.2 new front caliper sliders
.New front Discs/Pads

Next on the list is;

.Timing belt inc Water pump and Aux belt
.Lower arms and track rods

After a while not spannering a car, I can say that it definitely takes time to get back into the swing of it ? I’ve enjoyed it though and did miss it.
