Hi,

Just a guess here, but any chance it might be your truss bearing within your

gearbox housing and pressure plate. Can I ask you, does it whine when sitting

in the driveway, in neutral and with engine running.

John.

the old belt is now on it's last legs.. so I'll be getting it swapped in the next couple of days,
@dave had given me a hint about locking the belt tensioner - with an (8mm..?) drill bit..,

I'll try and get a few pics..at least it's dry/sunny..

@andy ilsf - is your marea still alive..??
Charlie

i do believe that is true, but not worth the effort imho. A normal spanner, and an extension to ease the pressure on your hand and to elongate knuckles from sharp bits is a good move.

agreed,

I did the tensioner a couple of summers ago,
refitted the tired old belt.. in case there was a failing bearing..that threw the belt - but has held together ok,

amazing how I'd remembered MOST of the job,
it was the routing almost completely around the crank pulley that got me.. BOTH TIMES
