Yeh, good luck!!!! Not that you'll need it for the T-belt, oil pump work -- just takes a few hours of wrenching. But good luck on hitting the cure for the lifter noise.

One other thing I find indispensible for this work. No air compressor, so I always have a few cans of "air blaster" (like you get at Radio Shack) on hand. After solvent cleaning, you want to keep crud off the work area..... and for making sure bolt holes and mating surfaces are free of grit. Keeps the cat away from my tools, too :)
