    Much needed engine bay work next weekend

    Collected all the bits i need and want to replace, spark plugs, boost solenoids, vac lines and plan on doing the lot next weekend [weather permitting]!

    Rough idea on time needed? I figured 1 hour to remove cowl and engine cover?

    cowl, engine cover, 15 mins. just follow your JB4 install manual for that. (engine is just four screws). As long as you have all the tools you are all set.

    for plugs, it takes nothing but take care when you do it. Also you should have the spark lug tool and a torque wrench.

    Boost solenoids are also easy to replace. I suggets removing the canisters when you do it. @cwarren did it for me, and it was much easier with the canister (from the solenoids side removed).

    Vac lines take no time...

    Make sure you do all of this in one time to save overhead of removing cowl, cover and putting them back on

    Hey buddy Click here to enlarge, what vac line are your referring to? I changed most of them when I did my boost solenoids, they were fairly easy. I think you are referring to the line connecting to the WG , then yeah it's a pain

    the annoying part about the boost solenoids was there is two nuts that hold them. one is on the top and the other is on the bottom hidden by the device itself. the bottom one is a pain and that's why I said remove one of the canisters, it gives you more space.
