unfortunatly i think this is the end of the road for the ruff ryder as the guy that promised my his engine is seriously messin me about so it looks like im gonna have to stop bein a tight arse and get a 1.6......
cleaned my garage completely today ready for the 1.3 to go into the garage to be striped for good...... :sad:
sad moment as my first car and project goes down the drain...6 months of hard work now to get scrapped.  :cry:

still maybe this is a good thing on to bigger and better things..  :smiley:

will keep you all update on what happens!

Tim. :cry:

well after a long and really stressful day..(think my exams will be easier!!)
finalny me and my mate got the engine out.... was alot harder that i thought it would be.. he came over at 8am and we finnished dead on 8pm.... :???:

so it all came out with out any broke pieces and im pritty happy with it all as now its not to hard a job fitting it back as iuve dissconected aslittle as possible so it shouid be more strait forward when putting new engine in.

Engine bay now ready for a jet wash for the new engine which should be here soon!

also gotta say BIG thanks to dave_dub for comin over with his very nifty star thingy and removin my drive shafts!!


well heres just some of the pics we took there are loads but u'll get the jist of it!

























enjoy!!

PS a HUGE thanks has to go to rubjonny for the help he gave me over MSN tryin to tell a non experienced person like how to remove the engine!! THANKS AGAIN!!!
