My mk2 has been a really good runner after i sorted out the mixture its been running great then tonight after leaving a mates workshop i tried to pull away in first then dropped it to second to get better traction and it stalled and when i restarted her she ran fine but there was a kinda really bad tapin just like tappets on an old ford pushrod engine when they need adjusting but twice as bad, also there is a serious lack of power it'll barely go over 40mph.

we took off the rocker cover and the camshaft looks fine even when moving at tick over.

we took off the cambelt cover as we thought maybe it had jumped a couple of teeth??? but that looks tight and not slack and quite new.

we dont think its the bottom end shell bearings but it does sound internal??

we thought maybe its the hydraulic tappets but i havent got much of a clue about how they work or how to fix them etc to tell you the truth i'm not even sure what to look for when it comes to them lol but who knows lol

i'm trying to stay cheery about it and not let it bother me just get it sorted trouble is i need it for work tomorow and dont fancy risking driving it in lol
and i especially dont fancy riding in on my old cg125 lol.

so if anyone can help with advice etc i'd really appreciate it Smile

thanks

Gal

hi there mate
thanks for the reply but i went out this morning and took a more precise look at the cambelt i.e (i actually looked at the timing marks lol ) and the top pulley was off by about 2 teeth so it HAD jumped after all f*****g unlucky but there you go lol causing the pistons to very lightly touch the valves i reckon which was making that tapping noise and obviously giving the lack of power, so i slipped off the belt turned the cam and stuck it back on now it purrrrs like a kitten lol lucky b*****d or what?? actually touch wood its running better than it ever has touch wood touch wood i'm very superstiouswith that one not just kinky i swear MY MK2 IS PLAYING UP :( CAN ANYONE HELP? Lol .

as happy as a pig in s**t lol

thanks again
Gal
