Is that all?

Whilst test driving on a rolling road, a huge clunk and grinding sounded and the engine stalled, i tried starting again, nothing, i depressed the clutch, it started and died again, then it wouldn't start at all!

I have once, on a type 4, had the starter cog jam behind the flywheel with the same symptoms, i stripped most peripherals and dropped engine, what faced me was a shocker!

The flywheel had come off!

The bellhousing wasnt too bad, just scuffing, i cleaned it up and replaced flywheel, oil seals, and cowels, the crank was not bad. due to time pressure, i reinstalled engine and we were running well , no oil leaking!!!

Bad times but up and running again!
