as above cambelt went on the way to work yesterday was only doing about 35 so i thought it might just have bent some valves.
So this afternoon i took the head off to see the damage,
nearly all the valves are bent, cylinder No1's piston has two small indentations from where it's hit the valves and i also noticed that all 4 pistons have around 0.5mm of play in them.
ok i know the valves need replacing, but what about the other things?.......will cylinder No1's piston be alright to keep using, and are XE's allowed/meant to have a slight bit of play in them?
or am i looking at a dead engine?
