So after replacing the kicker gear I checked my timing and the light stayed on
These New 1000 mile Blue Streak Points
have somehow detached there bottom contact so are open all the time
and caused the advanced timing that caused the kickback that caused the kicker cog to break and crack the kicker cover.
Hope the Crank Pulley Holds as we are off to the TRIP OUT tomorrow

up on the lift again seems constant every week now
to find source of noise - refit a new kicker gear and find out why the timing is advanced and nearly had my leg off.
The crank seal leaks still its not from the little screws holding the regulator wires
I took it off put on a smaller o'ring 9 although its not leaking down the grooved teeth of the crank and this time pushed it on flush up to the bearing. Somehow I don't think that will work.
I found the pulley was loose causing the noise - but the nut wasn't!
My fault. The washer I used previously which was thicker than the one originally supplied was not going over the shoulder on the crank. (the inner diameter is 7-10 thou smaller). Somehow I didn't notice and that little o'ring I put behind the crank seal was too big. and pushed everything forward. I was going to replace it but the spare replacement seal didn't arrive till Saturday and I had already got other problems to deal with!
So I now have to get a new pulley - £100 - OUCH
And finally -
I fitted a a new IRIS Xring chain two weeks ago - the previous one lasted 13000 miles! I should have taken it off at earlier at 10000 (heh heh) as thats when it started to need adjusting after every outing although not loose on sprocket.
