wutHollywood while you have it apart. You should change the fan belt idler pulleys to the metal Hyundai ones as well.
I guess I should have explained that part a little better. When the key way broke loose it got sucked back into the the motor and got caught between the chains and the sprocket. It wedged in far enough the chain spun 180* before it kicked it out and into the oil pan. When I took the oil pan off the oil pump chain had one of the links just hanging and a few others just ready to pop off. Whats surprising is the oil pump chain cost 25% more than the timing chain that's 4 times it's size. I did manage to find out though MAPerformance is the cheapest for OEM parts when tracking this stuff down.Howie is fine...his car is slow. :shades:
I've read a bit about the ATI damper. Considering how critical the balance of the rotating assembly is, I wouldn't install something on there thinking that 'lighter is better'.
I'm also trying to imagine how breaking that could bend valves. It must have seized for a moment and messed up the timing chain?
I saw that a few times but I couldn't find anyone who actually had one blow up. Do you have a link to an incident?Hollywood while you have it apart. You should change the fan belt idler pulleys to the metal Hyundai ones as well.
For the serpentine belt? Cuzzzz The chain doesn't use a pulley, it uses resin guides.There are some posts on EvoM of people that have the issue with the idler pulleys, but no pictures showing it. If it were a major issue, I would have thought we'd have seen more of it by now.
Yeah, the belt not the chain and it had something to do with the pulleys just exploding.For the serpentine belt? Cuzzzz The chain doesn't use a pulley, it uses resin guides.
