unbelievably lucky...

Post by ralph »

I found my half-inch socket adaptor today - stuck behind the timing belt tensioner pulley. :shock:

I lost it while changing my timing belt - I've since done about 2,000 miles.

After three weeks of a strange whining sound, I took the timing belt covers off, thinking the belt may be too tight. God only knows how the adaptor kept away from the belt and didn't rip it off.

Am I the luckiest DIY bodger on this forum?? (I got down on my knees and said a little prayer when I spotted it lurking in there) :D

I found a set of rusty mole grips being used as a temporary clamp on one of my cars. They weren't mine and I have no idea which of the many previous owners put them there.
