well my college is scrapping a 1.2 brava very soon and it did have a good engine when it came in but the cam belt has been on and off a few times without the locking tool used

im guessing there could be a possible be a bent valve at worst case as the engine hasnt been ran

would be be best to take the spark plugs out and turn it over by hand to check if it hits anything, if thats ok do a compression test to see if timing is out massively?

any help would be appreciated on how to check this, quicker the better as were doing a complete strip down and cataloguing a punto

EDIT its the 1.2 16v super-fire engine

If the engine, not been running i'd say it be fine! Unless someone tries to turn the pully with a breaker bar :P

only way to tell is to take the head off and take a look inside

Turn over gently by hand is a good idea, endoscope is an other.

Cheers

re: slow build 16v cinq

well pulling the engine out tomorrow, anything else worth getting of the bravo before it gets scrapped?

taking engine and anything bolted to it (bar gearbox which has had it)
loom
could get ecu, codebox and ignition barrlel but useless as no key

re: slow build 16v cinq

ok got soem stuff off it today

such as
engine
gearbox (not knackered)
alternator
inlet/exhaust manifolds
engine loom but i belive this is useless to be as its not the same type of ecu or connectors

needs a load of odd nuts and bolts as some are missing but im not complaining as it was free

cinq was taken the the piss out of today when it picked up the engine it stopped after i said it beats walking

will get some pictures up soon

re: slow build 16v cinq

been going along slowly with this engine, managed to break two star drive's getting the cam assembly off

could anyone recommend a good long reach 1/2" star drive set?
