This was instantly diagnosed by two experienced engine builders.

Yup. One of my Elite engines did that on Isle of Wight. Think you offered to help me out IF. Got back to the mainland and took hours to get home with various lowloader drivers running out of driving time and dropping me off a couple of service stations later, sending vans that were too small to tow or not turning up at all. Absolutely pissing down the whole time.

Sounds proper cattle-trucked that - or could it be a WBX Diesel!
