Question Asked: broken camshaft drive pulley plugs held in place by resin - common fix or bodge
March 12, 2014, 03:18 AM
I had a timing belt service where the mechanic broke the plugs taking them out (common) and replaced them holed but sealed and retained by resin. I only found out 14k miles later at different garage doing gaskets, found gunk in pulley = new pulley. Is resin an accepted way of holding plugs on this variable valve drive pulley. I guess the resin cost more than the plugs?
