Re: Dr. Dirt is in surgery

Yesterday I removed the "inner" valves springs for the cam break-in and now I'm waiting on some custom pushrods to arrive before starting it up. I can tell you that re-installing the inner's with the motor installed in the bug will be a little trickier!

Re: Dr. Dirt is in surgery

Still waiting on the pushrods to come in, but in the mean time I've spent a week+ trying to see if I can work some "beehive" valve springs in! A lot of measurements and phone calls so far along with ordering some sample spring retainers and locks.

Re: Dr. Dirt is in surgery

I got my last retainer sample in and it works so I've got a combo that will work! Today I ordered up a full set of retainers and a set of beehive's.

Re: Dr. Dirt is in surgery

As far as I can tell it's the first time it's ever been done on my type set-up, it took some time/money and a lot of phone calls to find a combo that would work!
