Re: Old Cleveland engine
That's about it. In subsections for camshaft there is lifters. If yours is working fine? Don't touch it. If it needs replacing? You'll need new ones with the new camshaft.
They're a basic engine. If maintained, generally nothing goes wrong.
A mate and I checked over his 265,000k old 302C. Once we had all the data we compared it to the manual and it was all spot on. Compression was 155psi which is pretty good for an engine that was built in 1974. How do we know it was built then? From the date stamped on the bearings we changed. If I remember right? It was May 74.
