Re: Replacing the cam

Thats a bummer. I have a super strong magnet and I was hoping to get the lifter out using it.

I wanted to keep the car on the road as long as possible, but it is running really bad now. The timing is jumping, uses no oil, other than what I think is a bad lifter, it runs well.

See how it performs when you get it on the road. Pulling the head and shaving a bit more is pretty simple on these engines compared to bent engines.
