Coming home down the IDR in Reading when all of a sudden the engine sets up a god awfull racket, no loss of power immediately obvious but something is very wrong.
The noise "sounds" like real heavy tappet noise, possibly its dropped a valve I dont know for sure yet. Got it home whipped the cambelt cover off and had a look at tthe water pump but cant see anything obviously wrong with it.
I await the opinion of Animal when he comes down this way next.
Either way its off the road now until after Christmas / New Year.
Ah well, such is life.
