Broken ignition cover (part 1)

January 2015 - The dark place where we're working had kept a broken generator pulse cover secret until now. The first quick inspection had revealed what initially seemed to be a scuffed cover, but the truth is a little more serious.
The bad thing about it is that the engine had already been started that way, but fortunately not reved too much. But still, there was a small leak of fresh oil surrounding the broken ring and there was something to worry about knowing the pulse sensor and rotor could be damaged inside.

The supporting ring is cracked inside the cover

Time to source another cover first. To be continued ...
