Its been around 45 days since i have joined the workshop & there are tons of things i have learned. Like Engine rebuilds,clutch plate changing,axle changing,fault detection,brake bleeding,clutch bleeding,etc etc etc

Below is a pic which shows me working on the car.(was removing the cross-member below)

The first thing to do on Monday is get the engine out of the corolla & open it up.[evil]

Have even opened/rebuilt esteem,NHC engines. (Obviously not alone)

reason for telling u all this ? - Just wanted to share.[lol]

Later came out the oil chamber,crank case,crank shaft & then the pistons.

The engine block has been sent to get the work done & new pistons,connecting rods will be ordered tomorrow.
