any idea where I can get a good s/h crankshaft cambelt sprocket?
« on: November 01, 2018, 09:07:39 pm »
eek help! I just did my cambelt, straightforward enough, but I can't have done the crankshaft bolt ( the 6 sided one) up to the full torque, cos it came loose after about 20km, and in so doing the locating key on the cambelt sprocket got flogged out.  Anybody have anyidea where I could source a s/h sprocket? 

'87 8-valve gti - engine code PB - interstingly it was a tourist delivery, no rust!  Just a slightly ham fisted owner  >:(
Mk2 Gti 8V digifant ( daily driver except when sons are home)
Mk2 Gti kjet ( sold)
Mk1 Gti (sold - bugger)
Mk2 Gti 16v (company car in the UK)
Westphalia camper ( sold)

Use lock tight on the bolt and do it up really tight. Its best to do with a bar somehow jamming the flywheel, often has that bung you can remove and jam the flywheel teeth. You can just use a rattle gun but becareful as the VW pullys are quite brittle and can crack if you rattle too hard.
The end is nigh, but the end of what is the question?
