147 1.6 Head Questions?
Working on the wife's 147, after the water pump failed and threw the timing belt off. On inspection there were two inlet valves bent (No4), I removed the two valves and while the cams were off I turned the head over and filled the combustion chamber with water to check if any other valves passing. After an hour chambers 1 + 3 were holding the water but chamber 2 had passed a slight dribble thru the exhaust port. (slight burnt valve seat?)
Question:- Is this a good way of checking that I don't have any other bent valves? as the remaining valves look to be seated properly. I then put the camshafts back in to check the operation of the valves, but there seems to be more resistance than I expected when the valves were being depressed. (I'm more used to the Fiat 8v twin cam engine) Should I expect more resistance with a 16 v head? or do I have a slighty bent valve?
