    Cam chain failiure

    Has anyone on here had this before? My car died last night on the side of the road, i have no compression,and the belt is intact. I noticed with the oil cap off that the inlet cam seems to have a delay when turning the engine over so i summise a problem there.

    I am stripping her tomorrow,and wonder does anyone have a spare AEB cylinder head for sale??

    I will update then

    Well the chain looks intact,and still in line, but i have absolutly no compression. So obviously summat touched. I aim to remover the head tomorrow to see what i can find inside.

    All i could find was a small bit of cambelt cover inside the belt area,so i assume it somehow jamed the belt causing this damage

    as much as i dare,i was gonna wedge the new head on when i noticed that the timing marks didnt line up on TDC. The key has sheared from the back of the bottom cam pulley. I am so glad i eventually found the reason for the blow up

    Ouch... I don’t have a clue when working inside an engine so the fact you found the problem I tip my hat but a pity it happened to you right now.

    f*ck me thats unlucky, even a broken cam belt usually only bends valves in one cyclinder.

    Turned out to be a broken key off the bottom timing pulley. She is now running better than ever thanks to an AEB head etc. WWWOOOOHHOOO

    Worrying thing is,it had settled at 180 degrees out so didnt look to out of place until it came to re assembly time. I noticed TDC was showing on 2 and 3 instead of 1 and 4.
    Shame it cost so much for the sake of a £25 part
