I'll be interested to hear the outcome of this.
I'm strongly inclined to agree with Kev. I don't see how the belt could slip if it was correctly fitted and tensioned. I have heard people say their belt slipped and have always been sceptical of the claim, but I may be wrong. It hasn't happened to me. Though I have seen cases where the valve timing ended up being wrong when tension was applied, and I have seen one where the chap thought he had it right when actually the belt was not seated in the teeth of the on the bottom pulley.
I'd be checking that the cam and crank pulleys are properly and securely held in place and that the tensioner is working as it should.
I'll look forward to reading more about this. Eurajohn will know I should think.
Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.
