Hydraulic tappets.

Some one must be a font on knowledge on these. I picked up the heads today
for Morph and the conversation turned to hydraulic tappets. I won't pretend
to understand them at the moment but could someone talk me through what if
anything I need to do prior to rebuilding Morph.

He has had a new valve fitted and the rest reseated and a decoke.

One tappet had a rattle (barely noticable) prior to the strip down. Cam
shaft looks fine and didn't cause any concern prior to the stripdown
(bearing in mind I was only running on 7 pots I'm happy it's ok.

Of course the offending tappet will be no doubt impossible to locate... it
could even have been a side effect ( spit and blowby ) of the holy valve
batman.

Replacement tappets are so cheap that you may as well just bite the
bullet and replace the lot.

I'd agree.

Not quite a Landrover, but we spent ages some while ago trying, and failing,
to trace a duff hydraulic tappet on a CVH Ford Escort head ... In the end we
just bought them all and replaced them in about the same time we'd spent
trying to find the duff one.

Not Landrover but everything is becoming clear....

I've seen shims listed on parts lists...whats that all about if they adjust
themselves or am I getting mixed up with different engines?

You're getting mixed up on different engines - the shims MAY be used on
a OHC engine depending on how it is designed.

just had a thought ( annual event ) Peggy was a bit tappety on one but it
went
away after I cleared the oilways of accumulated sludge and stuff. it was
just
poor oil feed that caused it mark the shafts carefully when you remove them
front which side and top or you wont get any feed at all
