View Full Version : My RC has died

So it stopped running after I ran it very hard a few weeks ago, it seemed to be a fuel pump issue to me, but I've tested it since and had no problem with fuel pressure. I checked spark, its sparking. I checked compression, 110, 110, 130, 130. I lined up the timing marks on the cams to the top. The crank pully is at 10btdc. It should be at zero should it not? I think my timing belt may have jumped a few gears. Input greatly appreciated.

Looks like it jumped timing to me.

+1. It will run a tooth or two off (and not be super happy), but far enough off and it's possible it won't start.

Yep, should be at zero. Did you mess with the timing belt when you did your oil leak fix? Maybe the tensioner got stuck and didn't release properly, then caused things to slip.

Maybe some oil got on the belt, I didnt replace it, but I have the new one still. When I did that 5k burnout, I think I made her jump...

thanks for input folks...I am a little relieved its not the rings.
