another happy customer !!

Ian,
I just finished replacing the chain pads on my 1990 S2 Cab.  Thanks again for the swift service and the great advice and instructions that you gave me.  You are truly a DIY'ers best friend.  I know most folks complete this job in an hour or two, however, it took substantially longer for me due to a couple complications.   One of the instruction threads mentions "waking up" the cam cover bolts.  I should have done that as one of the bolts had to be convinced to let go by use of vice grips.  It didn't break but did twist slightly.  Also, the two pan head bolts that hold down the tensioner assembly stripped well before I reached 7.5 foot pounds with my torque wrench on re-installation.  I think the only thing holding them in was electrolysis. As for the old pads they looked to be in decent shape and I have attached photos.  My car has 154,000 miles on her so I feel it safe to assume the previous owner had replaced them and stripped the bolts in the process.  So glad I checked this out! Thanks again, Ian and sorry for doubting you.
