Re: Valve Train

Thanks for the info. It is actually an A87 head, which I thought I read might be a bit better suited to the 2.2 liter block.

Re: Valve Train

Can anyone tell me a bit about valve seats? It appears our seats are Bronze. Is this stock? Should the replacements be Bronze or is there something better?

Re: Valve Train

Well, thought we had this licked. Went back to the stock valve spring retainers and lash pads. Valve operation all seemed fine with everything moving smoothly...for a couple days. On the way home from a show last night it reared it's head again. It appears the #3 intake valve is sticking. Right now ...

Re: Valve Train

So the one rocker in question is shorter. My question now is, I have a stock 210 head. The one presently on the car is a U67. Can I swap the stock rockers, valve spring retainers and lash pads to this engine even though they may be after market springs.

Re: Valve Train

So in answer to all the questions: Yes the lash pad has a flat bottom Yes I believe it is a bit of a performance cam although I don't know the specs. Yes the valve spring retainer was contacted. The war pattern is fine, just glare from the picture. My mind is the rocker is too far back on the lash p...

Re: Valve Train

20180803_202935 small.jpg So I looked things over and every thing seems to be in order. The valve moves freely like all the others. I reassemble it and notice the rocker doesn't quite cover the lash pad as completely as the others. All of the others are consistent. Could this be a bent valve or a s...

Re: Valve Train

Thanks for the input. I don't know the history of the head except that it hasn't been redone since we owned the car. It has had work done though because it has a bit of a cam in it and the retainers are not stock. I will try to post pictures this evening.

Re: Valve Train

I have pushed on the valve and it seems to travel smoothly, in the same manner as the valves beside it. I am going to get my hands on one of those bore cameras and have a look inside at the valves and see what that looks like. One thing I do notice is that when I put this lash pad in place it seems ...

Valve Train

So we had this little part appear to jump out of its position between the top of the valve and the rocker. I have no idea why this would happen and wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I don't think the valve adjustment was too loose, If anything I think our valves were adjusted too tight ...

Re: 2018 Summer Drive

Afraid we are going to have to bow out of this run because I have to attend a memorial service on Saturday. Hopefully the next one.

Re: Modified Collector Insurance

Thanks for the responses. Looking further I think we would not pass on a couple of points, one being the working parking brake and the other possibly the seat belts. I think Keith you have the right idea, don't open a can of worms as you might end up with the result you don't want.

Thanks again
