Re: Need help diagnosing rough running 89

Well this got interesting. Pulled the valve cover this morning and found this special treat...



Put it back in place, put everything back together and it runs like it used to but is still ticking.

Re: Need help diagnosing rough running 89

Did you pull it out to see if it is bent or anything?

Re: Need help diagnosing rough running 89

Cant see the pic. Was anything loose on the valve train. The rockers? Could you spin the push rods with your fingers?

The picture showed a rocker that had moved over off of the push rod. Not sure why the picture is gone. I saw it the other day
