Partook in a charity cruise over the festive period travelling around the Isle of Thanet, got papped!
It’s never worked, does now, just the usual spindle that had popped out, easy fix, took the liberty of giving the numbers a bit of a spruce up and they were all grimy. All done, next!
So, it went bang. It ended up with a good used crank, 4 pistons, a new cylinder head and a turbo for good measure. Up and running again but only at a modest 1 bar boost for the time being.
Seems when Vege did the rebuilt 10+ years ago they introduced some weakness into the crank…unlucky!
