Loafing around at dog agility classes (I'm strictly there for moral support) is also good thinking time ;)

The extra time also helps for unnoticed horrors to catch the eye: a casting bleb high up in the timing gear housing, about the size of ¼ peanut, was held on by less than 1mm² and took the slightest of taps to detach :shock:

Here's the offending bleb and where it was lurking (right next to where I had chosen to relocate the dipstick, that tiny white dot by the file handle is where it was attached)
I dont want to think about the damage it could have done.
