Just waiting for conformation that the cambelt has gone on the no.79. Have no time or money left in the pot so its going. Im sure it will make a nice little project car for someone but not for me anymore. Pictures and info to follow for anyone interested. Located in Northamptonshire...

I had a donor engine put in last year and asked to have the cam belt changed. Mechanic said it was virtually brand new and didnt need doing. Obviously made a fatal error as i barely got 6000 miles out of it

Has the belt snapped, or has something else let go (tensioner, pulley or water pump)?

Reminds me of my old 145... I was going to change the water pump but it looked brilliant still so I thought it should manage another 36k.. packed up 11k short of being changed (and lunched the engine at the same time).
