    that looks like the adjuster ring that's collapsed, so it would be in-advisable to start the engine imho

    mobile mechanic or a LandyZoner near you mate ;)





    if it's the latter you'll need lots of tea and cake :D

    alternatively yes it is



    if you know how to time it up correctly but i'd also fit a new belt and other associated stuff at the same time just to be safe
