Poo Renault Cr4p - Grrrrr

  Trophy Turbo :)
Dont you love when your car kicks you in ya balls then spits them back out!!!

I had a incodent at Bedford with my sloppy gear change, i thoght the engine had slipped the belt, im sure the bottom and top were turning!!! never the less i ripped the car to bits and the car seemed ok, i replaced the belt and all seemed good.

Went to start the car tonight and nothing......

I should have stripped the full engine down but i decided it was easyer just to do the belt, as i built the engien abt 4k ago....

Wipped it out and found the problem....................


Looks like ive broke the bolts and sheered them all off!!! :(

Engine rebuild it is.
Oh dear Andrew, what have you done this time Tsk Tsk Tsk

Guess I'll be a busy little boy tomorrow night :D

On the plus side hows the paddle clutch looking?

Looks like it has sheared the flywheel bolts off? How you've managed that I don't know.
Probably wouldnt start due to incorrect crankshaft sensor signal as flywheel wouldnt turn.
