yeah, doesn't need to be 90, whatever is enough to drop the pistons to be sure the valves aren't contacting them. That is all I was thinking about. But if the shims are OK and the valves are seated in the buckets OK, you don't really need to do that. I suggested, in case there was valve contactOh ok, i checked some lifters and they all had their shims in the correct place, but i’ll go back and check them all. Then if that dosent work i’ll turn the engine 180°. I’ll let you know by tonight if it worked or not thank you very much. also what happenes if i do use a magnet?
Then the laws of physics have broken for you.Ok yeah i didnt remove valves during rebuild. Also yeah i know the cam journals aren’t in place, no matter which way I turn the cam they it dosent fall into the journals, there’s always a gap, if one side of the cam is flush, the side is up 1/4 of an inch. Am I just being dumb, this is my first time dealing with any can before so i’m just making sure i don’t break anything. Ok so i just want to know what my next step is. If i make sure all the shins are in place and i even turn the motor 90° and the car still dosent fall in place(into the journals) what next?
Well, my only concern, and some of the re-edits, is to make sure I am not leading you up a path when there is something wrong I cannot see.I get that, when i get the cam journal bolts in, they have like 1/4 inch gap befofe they would sit flush before it gets really tight. Too tight. How about i just send a picture of what i mean when I get home. I’m probably explaining wrong. Thank you for the advice tho i really appreciate it wanna figure this out.
