So referring back to this post iv been in the garage and put a degree disc on the crank and a dial gauge on the rocker.Steve_S wrote: ↑Tue Feb 19, 2019 4:46 pmSo Im still not convinced the engine is making full power seems to have the go of a 2.0 pulls ok up to half throttle then from there on just makes more niose and no more pull..
This is the vacuum reading im getting at idle to low would suggest cam timing is out and by the look the timing cover has been off.
Or it could be the camshaft is worn and not getting full lift ?
What does the collective think ?
It would appear that the cam timing is out by around 17 degrees.
So I was talking to a mate who trials land rovers and used to run a Essex 3 liter v6 he told me he had a timing gear boss slip and put the cam timing out.
