Thanks JonnyBoy – I’ll check there next
It’s not the FIRE (Or OHV)) BTW
An 'F' reg mk1 45S and it's NOT a FIRE?
Louie, are you being cryptic with us? :chin:
Or just say if it is the one I am thinking of! I'll keep a secret
As for your camshaft not budging, it can only be one of two things.
1. The valves are so badly tangled they are wedged in the guides hence the camshaft not turning (has to be REALLY bad for this to be the case).
2. The camshaft has seized in its bearings due to oil starvation or overheating (probably more likely).
IF there is a distributor fitted on the end of the camshaft, (which I don't think it is on this engine, eh Louie?
) then that could also have seized, but unlikely.
Take the cam cover off and have a look to see if anything is amiss. If that doesn't show anything then you'll have to whip the head off and investigate further.
Oh, and more pictures please! Does this '45S' have a turbo interior fitted but manual door windows?
Best of luck!
