    Anyone in the Seattle area can help me?

    I have a big project on my ZHP, which is being held up by this stupid 32mm wrench and water pump pulley holder taking forever to be delivered from China. I am home in Bellevue for the next week, and want to see if anyone would like to do a maintenance day in my garage, or maybe just let me borrow the fan clutch removal tools. Here is a list of the things I REALLY want to get done this week.

    Oil filter housing gasket
    CCV system
    determine if i should continue using old spark plugs (27k miles, with oil on threads), or just put in the new ones I ordered.
    inspect for vacuum leaks, maybe do rpm test with carb cleaner if nothing visible.
    fluid changes

    I have space to work on 2 cars, including mine. I also have most of the necessary tools, and would supply the beer and food (vodka or cognac is also an option. I'm Armenian.)

    PM me or respond to this thread!

    Thanks,
    George

    Good luck, hope you can get that stuff done. I might be up in Seattle in a few weeks, but it's not certain. If I am, I'll let you know!

    Thanks! I think I will have it handled as long as I can get these damn tools in time. It was scanned in San Francisco on 11/14...

    I actually did try that method. Just went to Home Depot and "rented" a 32 mm wrench. No luck with the hammer method, even though it seems to work for a lot of people.
    BUT the tool finally came from China...just the water pump pulley holding tool. So I went to my local Auto Zone, which didn't have the tools before, but no they did.
    ANYWAY, I am back on track. Nevertheless, if anyone wants to exchange knowledge and use my garage, let me know.
    Thanks for your help!

    I've found a dead blow hammer works well & is safer.
