Separate names with a comma.
I had this happen over the past weekend... Passenger side secondary chain and sprocket broke.
Geeze! Any damage to the valves?
Borescope showed the valves tapped the pistons but the cam is not seized. If it was any other car I would throw some spare parts at it and go.
wow........Sorry to see this John.
Geez. Well, it is true that a project car is never finished. They always keep you on your toes.
Wow that does suck John. I'm assuming this was not at high rpm at least.
I was sitting idling in the garage.
Sorry to see your bad luck John. Does the sprocket look as though it suffered a stress crack, or was it caused by something else? Hope your able to get back in action with minimal effort. Good thing it was at idle.
Seems to be common. The heads I removed from the 03 Aviator had the drivers side secondary chain snapped. The rest of the engine was spotless.
Best I can tell, the break initiated at the integral key. They are (were) the FRPP sprockets with the new timing set used when the motor was built. They look to be iron sprockets? From what I've read, the PS tensioner is the culprit in most of these occurrences. Aftermarket kits offer a supposedly superior design along with heavier secondary chains.
Hate to see that. Sorry that happened JP
