Working at the Euro Service today. Just a little inspiration.



Took the rocker shaft off to re-torque the head. Got it all torqued down and then this happened:



No biggie. Picked up an extractor and I was back in business.



All buttoned up. Head torqued to final spec and valves adjusted.



Here's a ****ty video to prove it! Still needs a good bit of tuning.

Oops. It's not that exciting anyway. Just proof that I actually did something this winter

Finally got it running okay today. Then I figured out I have a huge intake leak where I plugged the fuel injector ports which is why it won't run any better than 'okay'. One of the plugs came out completely

Oh well. I finally got to put 6 miles on it!

That deserves recognition in the round fender inspiration thread. Looks awesome.

When it's done I might see if I can get some TB photographers to take some real pictures for me.

Thanks fellas. I hope to get my FI plugs in correctly tomorrow so that I can actually tune the carbs. I knew I wouldn't regret ordering four extra ones

I gotcha. Just let me know when. Bonus points if you actually drive it out here and enjoy the mountain roads.

Some time after you get back from ipd maybe? I'd love to come up to WCU and cruise through the mountains.

Yep. I don't really know what to credit it to. Now I'm just trying to decide if I want to pull the head to make sure everything's okay.

Yeah seems like something got bound up. Tried rotating the engine by hand to compare pushrod travel?

I was trying to turn it over this morning but it got to a point where it didn't want to go any further. I need to check it out for sure.

That's bizarre. I've never seen that happen before.

Perhaps that exhaust valve is a bit tight in the guide and seized up when it got hot?

I don't know. If I can't turn the motor over by hand today then I guess I'm going to pull the head and make sure everything is alright before replacing it. I wondered if a lifter could have gotten stuck but it seems unlikely between the pressure from the cam and the pressure from the valves. I bought this engine as a core so I never used it before rebuilding. Maybe it had an imperfection that I never knew about. What are the chances that the valve hit my piston being these aren't interference motors? I know it didn't drop the valve.

Ugh, lame. I hope that's the worst of the damage.

Stuck lifters wouldn't do anything up top, because the lifter wouldn't be moving. Presumably it would massively chew up the lobe and lifter.

Almost has to be sticky valves on the exhaust. Was the head rebuilt? They may simply have been too tight.

If you need some rockers I've got a couple of unused sets kicking around the garage. I could pull a left or right handed one off and pop it in the postal system.

Well if you think about it it looks like the issue would have to be on the valve side, that is if something did actually get stuck and this isn't just a failure of the rocker. If the lifter or pushrod got stuck then the valve would just hang open, but if the valve got stuck then there would be pressure on both sides causing that failure....

Did you check for valve spring coil bind when installing the hi perf cam?,
