Torn dynamo chain
« on: 12.06. 2017 20:08 »
Having problems with non-charging dynamo, all the different test I did on the dyno gave no useful result... So I thought I have to bring the Dyno to my next car electrics workshop round the corner.
So I took off the timing cover to take off the dyno but what a surprise, the chain was torn!
I think I was a lucky man, because there were only minor scratches inside the cover, no real damage.
As a new chain is not very pricey and should last for the near future, I can think of a conversion to srm belt drive for a while...
Cheers tinu

 It must have been 'real wore out' to break- unless the con-link was left/fell off??

Was it over tight that snaps them quite easily
