Isn't it funny that every car that is advertised on eBay with a broken cambelt always broke down either pulling out of the driveway or idling in traffic? You never see an advert saying "the cambelt broke at 7,000rpm overtaking a lorry on the B1234". Interesting...

Could quite possibly have been reversing off the drive in a "revving to 6 grand slipping clutch"kinda way too. I wouldn't have thought the engine speed would bear a huge amount of relation to damage done and repair work needed. If pistons hit valves it'd get messy whatever....

Someone more mechanically minded me suggested that probably is the case, in that at idle and low speed the firing is a bit more lumpy causing more stress on the belt. I know what I’m trying to say…

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

Good point. But then the firing gets even more lumpy when you bounce off the rev limiter... It's true though that a lot of cambelts do go either on startup from cold or very shortly thereafter. I just think it's strange that I've never seen a single car on the Bay advertised as having had the belt go at high revs.

Arseache for definite. I reversed into one of those a matter of months before I qualified for protected NCD. :x I'm 99% sure the Thema driver was drunk but I couldn't call the police out because I was 100% sure I had no tax or MOT. :oops:

It is indeed, although the Porker that received the plate is at least the right age for the plate.I am praying that Mercedes put out a model called the SL520GT, because that's the number on my wife's car.

Apologies, yes, they were sixes, but surely not 3 litre as the listing suggests? Possibly down to ebay automatically filling the details in panel at the top?

If I'd had the space to keep it I would have kept my Commer Walkthrough burger van. I paid less than a tenth of the price of that one for it, and it was a great old thing. Ended up going to Cornwall.

Bit of a rarity. On scrap value at the minute so must be worth a punt to someone.
