My el backfired the other day and will not start I think it might be due to timing.

Here is my problem my el turns over then stops the turns again. El is the a free running engine so I think my valves will be bent. what is the chance they r ok?? And if not is it cheaper just to whack another engine in or fix mine? Anyone know the round about price for the cheaper option done by a mechanic ?

Thanks heap for any advice

Is it about sex? The engine in my car? Or a cure for cancer?

Aux shaft does take a hit when there are excessive revs or an oil pressure spike I think. The best way I can put it is that its a known potential issue
