- the sidewall (ring) of the exhaust camshaft sprocket came off and wrapped itself round the sprocket under the belt
- the belt didn’t break, but the camshaft notches at flywheel end are no longer aligned
- I’ve removed the timing belt and am just trying to gauge whether the cams are behaving as they should (by turning them very gently and not very far)
- plugs are still in and the inlet cam is quite stiff to turn
- but the exhaust cam turns very freely and smoothly
- is this normal?
