Yes, Bob, a pebble in my timing belt may well have
been the 3rd alternative as to what killed my motor.
I did have the lower plastic cover on protecting the
crank sproket (acting like a CUP now that I think
about that, bonehead move), but the upper cover was
never put on. So, if I find the crank sproket to be
fine, which I think it is, then a stone getting in my
timing belt must be the final timing issue to caused
my exhaust valve to shatter the keeper and lifter.
Hey, if I didn't learn my lesson the hard way at first
I would make those mistakes 2 or 3 times before
learning. I guess that is looking at the brighter
side of life!
