My statement was : "Ive torn down engines after setting for years in the woods that had lifter that still held their pressure!"



Many times have I looked for cars in scrap yards or farmers fields when one has an engine Im looking for I'll open the hoods, Ill check the oil pull the valve covers put a wrench on the damper and turn it over as I turn the crank to make 4 revolutions The rockers will move a little most have collapsed over time but a few lifters will still move the rocker arms to full open because when the car quit running they were full of oil at the heal of the lobe with the valve closed and with no pressure to force them to bleed off. the oil was trapped in the lifter for all that time! I see this every year when prepping cars for people after a winter storage some lifters in the engines are still pumped up after 3 or 4 months!

I can build an engine set lash at zero, prime, break it in, run it on a stand set it aside and wait for installation for a month or more! When installed Ill go to bring # 1 up to to top dead center and see lifters that didn't bleed down (because of their position on the cam lobe) open valves to their complete cycle!

When an engine is shut off there will always be a few lifters in positions that wont cause their bleed down! I thought my other statement read OK I guess I wasn't clear on my meaning! Sorry

1. Do not pump them up.

2. Follow the manufacturer's instructions, and...

3. ...use the info in the links below as a guide to help you do the things that will let the cam live a long and healthy life.

Full or empty its still 0 lash Its easier to set lifters for a beginner using the bounce method with the push rod and giving 1/4 turn initial set to the nut when you are at the point the push rod doesn't move up and down! that's all I meant Its not really hard either way for most but some just cant grasp it! ask any auto shop teacher LOL!

Are you using a translator when we send this in English! I never even thought of that if you do it must make it hard! Did the instructions for the cam come in English?

Good night
Briton....Britain.
Tire....Tyre granted but solicitor....lawyer donīt sound the same
and we have both.

Iīm using the USA version of Google Chrome and when Iīm on a Brit website posting the spellchecker goes nuts.

Aluminum....Aluminium.
Fanny is a good one, in the USA....your butt.
I worked for GM in the UK and an American boss told the secretaries to get off their fannies and get to work.
Fanny is not butt in the UK, itīs another part of the female anatomy, close by though.
It caused a mini riot.

What model vehicle, year, cu.inch.,roller or flat tappet cam?

Jester

Pull the cam look down the cam bore and see if when you pulled the cam some gunk or obstruction is stopping the cam from going back all the way? Or if when you installed you didn't hit a bearing with a lobe creating an obstruction making the cam fit tight? Does the cam spin easy?
