Re: 1997 Rebuild gone bad

Not wishing to throw a spanner in the works of Tony's reply, but when you did the compression test was the engine turning over at the right speed then? If not then you would get a low reading.

Have you fitted manual cam chain tensioners?

Re: Maidstone Motoliner- Kent. Recommended!

Nice one Tony :thumbup: So did they confirm it was the disc that was the issue? Chris. I knew that already, I'd checked it using my dial test indicator. One wasn't too bad, the other had a visible wobble. They trued both, and now braking is back as it should be. I had read your post where you said ...
