Hydraulic lifters
« on: 19 May 2009, 17:44:01 »

Could anyone tell me if the cam belt (not brakes) slips a couple of teeth and bends the valves and you carry on cranking to try and start the thing.
1.yes we have bent valves
2.and broken valve guides

We have repaired head with parts from trechi very resonable but now have no compression on cylinder no2 .

Is it possible that the hydraulic lifters have been damaged as well
cheers dave

Did you see any damage to the pistons while fixing the head?

So how did you sort the valve guides out?

Hi all valve guides were replaced all piston tops were fine slight marks nothing major.
Retaken head off checked head for valves seating inverted and put parrafin in top of the head and all valves sealing perfect.
Going to get some second hand hydraulic buckets this morning and try comp test.
Let you know
