    setting timing with a strobe on a k10

    For it to be that far out of spec i would think that the engine is not timed up correctly, check it using the timeing marks in haynes and if its out then you may aswell replace the belt and tensioner. I never re-tension an old cambelt and for the cost of them i wouldnt advise anyone else to...

    CV Joint and Gator Question !!! Helppp...

    I don't know if the CV joint is a ''knock off'' or if its held on with a small circlip on K10's but changeing the boot is a messy job either way.... You need to take the center hub nut off first (this WILL be tight) then remove the wheel, next out is the pinch bolt that holds the lower ball...

    I would be haveing the wheels off and having a look for myself mate, that sounds from your description like worn out pads but there are other things it can be. The 2nd suspect is the heat shield behind the front discs but this would make noises when turning too..... best bet would be to take...

    rear brakes

    a sharp crack with a decent hammer does wonders for rear drums, either that or a hamer and a big chizel to knock them off. A slide hammer on a wheel nut thread won't work unless you take the bearing out too as the drum is a seperate thing all together.

    rear drums

    If a lip has built up around the drum this could hold it on, my solution is a hammer and punch to knock it off, be a bit careful and it will get it off but in extreem cases it could cost you a set of shoes.

    Compression ratio for 95 octane pump gas

    For the head skim i would take as little as possible off to get it flat again. And for a DIY job on the inlet and exhaust ports i would match them to the gaskets and smooth them out removing any rough or sharp edges, but leave the inlets slightly rough (not mirror smooth) as this helps to...

    compression problem

    The first suspect for me is the valves, maby 1 has a burnt seat and is not sealing properly. To check this repeat the compression test then put some oil down each plug hole (a teaspoon or 2 should do it) then do the compression test again, the oil makes a very good temporary seal on the rings...
