I was sitting in my room earlier and I heard my mate in his xe nova coming up the road then all of a sudden puutuush! oh dear, engine stalled. Cranked over and no start,
we moved the cambelt cover out the way and cranked it once and the belt was still in place, which we though was odd, then noticed that the bottom pulley doesn't turn when cranking!!! oh dear
Now i'm guessing that the little key in the bottom pulley for allignment onto the crank has snapped off and thus caused things to bounce off each other.
Has anyone experienced a similar problem like this? and if so what was found to be the cause or is it a really bad case of bad luck
