Camshaft Position Sensor (TS)
I replaced the timing belt on my 147 1.6 at the weekend and now have a CPS error with car in limp-home mode. I was careful to avoid the sensor with my counter-torque tool, so is it likely I have damaged the track on the back of the pulley? I was originally planning to buy all of the tools from Totallyalfa, but his shop is still down, so I bought the tools from Shop4parts (cam locks), Alfa Workshop (dial gauge and adaptor) and Ebay (longer bolts for cam locks, Laser counter-torque tool. I suspect the Laser pulley tool was gripping the pulley in the wrong way and came into contact with the track.
I'm resigned to stripping all off again this weekend to replace the pulley, sensor or both (I imagine that if the track was damaged it may have taken out the sensor?). My question is, what's to stop me doing it again? In the absence of Totallyalfa, is there an alternative tool I should have used rather than the cheap Laser one? Does a forum member have one I could buy or borrow (I'm in South-East Essex but would happily cover postage both ways if not local).
As an aside, any advice on getting the water pump off? I bought a new one but chickened out having undone the three bolts and not seeing an obvious way to remove the old one.
