REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Brake linings contain asbestos. Asbestos is a known cancer-causing agent. When working on brakes, remember that the dust which accumulates on the brake parts and/or in the drum contains asbestos. Always wear a protective face covering, such as a painter's mask, when working on the brakes. NEVER blow the dust from the brakes or drum.

My hyundai excel wont start unless i pour water on
I'm very surprised pouring water onto the engine makes it start, if anything you are pouring water into the sensors, electrical wiring and surrounding the spark plugs. Water and electricity shouldn't mix, ever.
Check the distributor cap for any cracks - replace if there is.
Check a spark is getting to the spark plugs by holding an HT lead (one by one) to the engine block, crank the starter and if you see a spark that lead is OK, repeat for the other leads. If there is no spark, change the coil or coil pack.
Once you have established a spark then it could be fuel related. Check the injectors are wet after you have pumped the gas pedal. Hold the throttle wide open and try and start the car, if it starts then you timing could be out.
Adjust the timing with a timing gun.
I hope this helkps you and please vote for me and please don't pour any more water on your engine :)

I have a1991 hyundai excel i have replaced the
You really need to find the source of the air leak !
It there is a leak it will cause all sorts of mayhem.
A good way to find a vacuum leak is to spray some engine start or WD40 around the engine but away from the air intake , If the engine speeds up when you spray thats where you leak is.
Hope this helps.
