No guessing what wrong guys, i just need you all to feel my pain :-( my Dad was driving my car over to Germany, when he suddenly lost all power on the M6 in the roadworks, he managed to get it over in the cones, and get the AA out to it. When they turned up, they said that the timing belt had jumped a few teeth. Ok no worries.
Got the car back home, i flew from Germany to fix it, rather than put it in a garage. Stripped all the timing gear down, and found the water pump had collasped and caused the cams to skip.
Replaced the water pump and timing gear, and got it all timed back up. Car started 1st time
But it kissed a valve or 2 on cylinder 4, and kinda misfires, lol.
I'm about to take the head off and send it off for a skim and valve work, and then get it re-fitted tonight, so i can drive the car back to Germany tomorrow.
Wish me luck.
Pictures to follow.
