Re: Help!!!

It could be many many things.

Your better off telling us how are you running it in first, also, what type of valve train gear are you using - Solid/hydraulic lifters, standard/roller rockers?

Any problem is best aproached sideways ... with a crowbar

Re: Help!!!

i dont know a great deal about the engine. its running a comp cam hydraulic lifters with standard rockers. i am a diesel mec apprentice so yeah i am very new to petrol. I am in the process of changing the valve springs messuring the lift and piston to valve clearance. i did notice that there is a 90 tho shim under only one of the valve springs and i have a feeling that the vavle springs are not suited to the engine. Is it true that if there is a problem with the valve spring tentions and if it may be bottoming out it would destroy a rocker before the cam lobe?? and is it true that 240 to 280 is the correct vavle spring pressure for a clevo???

thanks
