    Timing Pulley Accident!!

    OK wait till you hear this guys. . . butter fingers or what . . .

    I was putting the timimg pulleys back on the cams tonight, when the right hand pulley, fell out of my hand to the ground, and the littlest of the timing sensor marks fell off. (well snapped actually)

    Is it super important ? ? Is it really needed?

    Should I chemical metal the sucker back on there again? What do you reckon guys?

    Let me know - I trust your judgment more than mine ! ! !

    Oh and I think I'll get one of the VX/draper tools after all for setting the timing . .its gonna make things so much easier I reckon!!!

    get a mew one unless you want your engine management light on all the time, the ecu won't understand where the timing mark has gone

    But will the engine run in the meantime?

    But will the engine run in the meantime? Until I can source a new one, or repair the old one?

    Is it just a case of the enging management light being on, or will it affect the cars timing, being the timing sensor and all that jazz.

    Thanks guys,

    JW

    If the sensor can't determine the postion of the sprocket, than's it not going to be able to time the engine properly.

    Just get a new one.
