    Driving along dual carriageway at 80 in 6th, oil pressure warning came on, about 20 seconds later all the dash lights cam on and it died. Local specialist stripped it down and the oil pump failed, simultaneously it looks like the timing chain skipped a tooth and knocked the timing out. So, ive got a cooked head, scored cams, knackered oil pump, and some bent valves. Not a happy chappy.
