Oh crap , that belt looks a mess this time too 😏

The previous "specialist scooby mechanic" overtightened the idle pulley bolt when fitting the new cambelt on the bug . Luckily enough I spotted it when doing the rebuild and it was in the pulley that is attached to the tensioner bracket . So I just had the thread helicoiled,  when reassembling .

Guess you've probably done a bit of damage , so plan A and rebuild ?

Well finally got round to making a start today, engine is ready to lift out, everything is disconnected it's just a bit tight on the bellhousing dowels, but that's for another day, missed the heat of the day stuck in the garage, so I think the rest of the weekend will be spent in the garden not the garage 802bbb283188d38163f0c33a0c5607e0.jpg7fcf3a3ef17914d52289ccbd2b2cd1db.jpg
