Hi does anybody know where i can get a com kit for a 1993 155 v6?, i would need the appropiate cam followers also, is there a company selling them in the uk?, my car has a lot of top end noise when hot , the valve clearences are ok but theres too much end float in the cams hence the noise, has anyone else had a similar problem?
Just a note to welcome another irish 155 owner to the site. You didn't happen to recently purchase the 155 off a chap in Clonmel.
That car has been the subject of much recent discussion on the site lately. Keep an eye out for the Irish meetings in the Meetings section.
We must try and organise a meeting soon.
I got my cam tappet/follower set from EB Spares. SOHC V6s are very ticky, even BMW 6-cylinder motors (SOHC) can be ticky.
One day I had a somewhat loud ticking sound from the engine of my 75 V6. It turned out to be a bad tappet.
So this could be a problem with a bad tappet or worn cam lobes. Try to get them inspected. The intake tappets are a little tougher to adjust yourself unless you have the proper shims. Exhaust, are as you know, easy to adjust.
