Wow... that's a dramatic pulley failure!!! I'd be checking the crank pulley for peace of mind.

Thanks for the advice. Will mention to my mechanic (when I sent him the pic he just sent back : that's gonna cost some $$$$'s )

Ah well. We'll see tomorrow.

It shouldn't be too sore... ask your mechanic to take off the timing cover and make sure no bits flew into the timing gear... not sure how much the top pulley is but I've recently done the crank pulley... from memory the part was 150ish from Ross sport. Hth

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah, it's the first thing he said to me, pop off the timing cove and have a quick look for obvious damage. I couldn't see anything clear - he'll have a much better look tomorrow.

Newer (thicker) water pump pulley is about 45 +P&P so not too bad. Hoping the crank pulley hasn't been affected.

It's more about wear and tear... evo 7 pulleys are now over 15 years old... it's the rubber in them that perishes over time. Definitely worth a look. Hope all goes well and it's a cheap fix!

Thanks again.

Yeah, very true. Well, if it needs to be replaced, it needs to be done ...

Very common failure regarding the Pulleys of 4-7 Evos.

We had many of these here in Germany, maybe related to the higher speeds on the highways for longer times.

I decided years ago ( mine failed on the Evo 7 at around 150000 Kms in 2007 ) to change any of these to the Evo8/9 version, which is beefier on the outside.
We do that to ANY Engine which has these old style ones when replacing Timing Belt or alternator belt . Better safe then sorry, because it CAN happen the the fragment is cutting through the Timing belt cover and makes the damage even worse..

Thank you for your input

Yeah, my fear was that it wold damage the timing belt and other items.

Hopefully it didn't. Mechanic called and so far just the water pump pulley so fingers crossed.

As said on face****...

(I guess due to age) tensioner, all pulleys and idler need replacing - which is fine if the parts could be got within a reasonable timeframe...
