Hey guys

My son has a 197 sport and one of the bolts in the oil pump has snapped off and as you can imagine has caused carnage !

Timing belt all chewed up - dephaser pulley gone - cam pulleys gone - 8 bent valves!! Luckily we have managed to get all the parts, apart from one - I cannot obtain the upper timing cover which has cracked!


Art Gas Font Nut Auto part


Anyone out there know of one or where I can get one - I have messaged every breaking model on ebay :(

I cannot see from the pic how badly cracked the cover is , but have you considered a half decent welder?.
When i worked for highways dept,the welder in the workshops was always dealing with alloy buts that were broken on the trucks ,and made it look east welding alloy. It might be worth a thought.
