Timing's out...

Exposed timing chain from a burnt out car found while geocaching today. Obviously the heat of a car burning is somewhat higher than the engine temperatures as the alloy components have melted in places.

    Thanks Melissa :)

    Much appreciated Horst :) There's something about rusty things that just appeals. Even more so where nature is clearly starting to take back what's been left behind by humanity.

    hehehe good one Kev ;-)

    Thanks, yes it's a view one usually doesn't see. Slagged tappet covers are not an everyday event ;)

    Did a double-take here - at first glance I thought the white stuff was ice, then I realised how impossible that would be ;-)

    hehehehe Yep, even in the middle of winter it'd be pretty much impossible to have ice like that here :)
