Default Terminal engine noise?

In the vague hope that anyone is still reading this group,
Lesley's 147 2.0TS broke down, and the engine sounds
terminal, but just in case, anyone have a clue what this
noise might be caused by?

I would read here every day, if there was something to read. ;-)

Ouch! My first guess would be piston rod bearings. But I would get
a decent diagnosis before you do anything. And try not to run the
engine in the mean time. If it's the bearings, the crankshaft also
needs to be replaced.

I thought there was something fishy about the butler. Probably a Pisces,
working for scale.

The 147 has been languishing in the garage since then, but we
put it on ebay for spares or repair.

But.

Someone popped up with a message to say that the noise was
the variator, and was not expensive to fix (he wasn't
offering to fix it, just trying to be helpfull!)
