    Talking How Not 2 Stop an Engine

    This is what I have been doing today. One vec B that has been recovered in to the workshop non start. Defect note said "was on a red call going down the gear's engine made a horrable noise and cut out now won't start" so got the car on the ramp took cam belt cover off the belt was very slack, Removed belt and found that the tensioner locking pin had snapped


    Then I had to remove the head to see is there was much left of the inner gubbings I think the valve's are slightly bent



    All 16 of them



    Poor Vec B new engine on order note: It was doing over a tone when it went BANG!!! (not me)



    That was my day really

    I do alot of work for South central Ambulance and a some bits for northamptonshire. Some of the motors that come in trashed is beyond belief. You boys have really got your work cut out keeping on top of it

    Still managed to get them to fit the V grill in for some colour codeing though

    coo.. if i had a quid for every 16V engine i'd seen do that.....

    Still, at a ton, it's to be expected..just think of the number of times the pistons hit the valves before the engine was stopped....

    New full engine is it Jay Kay?.. or just a head?..

    I was fitting handsfree kits for all Three Counties ERV and how they even get let on the road is beyond me.
    Well that is when they do eventually get out on the road after finishing their fags when a call comes in. Shocked isn't even a way to describe the behaviour I saw at various stations.
