Sheared cam pully on Cav Turbo
Got a cav turbo, cheap, the other week and just need some scenario's of what could have happened to shear the cam pulley off.
The previous owner was taking it to the MOT, pulled away from the lights and the engine cut out. Took the cam cover off the reveal the cam pully had sheared off.
What could have happened to cause this and could there be any extensive damage besides bent valves.
Also notice the goat had overfilled it with oil, to the A on max. Cripple!
Got the car bloody cheap (£££'s) so not too worried, just need some ideas to whats wrong.
The pulley was sheared from what?
Do you have any pics?
The pulley sits on the cam with a large stretch bolt, can't see how it can shear. Is the cambelt intact?
no pics soz mate but will try and get sum for ya john. will take the head off the wknd for closer inspection.
Where the bolt attaches the cam pulley to the cam was broken in half so the timing may have slipped and hence the car cut out???
When i got the car the pulley was already off.
hmmm - something sounds like it jammed the cam (didn't Susie Quattro sing sommat about that ?)
I'm surprised the locating dowel didn't shear first though.
yeah, there's a dowel there.
Maybe someone fiddled with the dowel, trying to adjust the timing a bit. Could be the same guy that filled it with oil lmao
