Cam angle sensor problem

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I have just bought a VL with an rb20 in it, and it needs some work.

 

started it today and let it get up to opperating temp and the cam angle sensor started to smoke... atleast i think it was the CAS smoking, the car doesn't have a timing cover on it and the smoke was coming from the sensors side.

 

I dont know much about rb20's, does the sensor have a bearing that can go or anything? i have no idea...

 

thanks,

 

Darren

it does have a bearing yes.

 

if its not running a front top cover than in needs 3 spacers where the 3 bolts hold it on, think they need to be 1.5mm or there abouts.

is the belt rubbing on anything?

what does the smoke smell like?

I will have to smell it again... i thought it was rubbery though.

 

I doubt the spacer's would have been put on so I bet that is the problem.

 

Ill have a look tomorrow, thanks for your help.

now that i think about it, measure the thickness of the top cover where the cas bolts on and thats how thick the spacers need to be.

get a good light and check the belt is not rubbing anywhere, and look for black powder which is evident when it rubs, also check the belt isnt overtightened
