Warning Noisey Tappets

For all you that think you have noisey tappets. Not to scare you all to much but when I swopped from my 1.9 156 to my 2.4 159 I allways thought that it was a little to noisey tappet wise, just put it down to an extra 4 tappets.

Boy was I wrong.




As you can all see the center pin on the rocker had come most of the way out, all the needle roller bearing fell out. The outter bearing case stayed in place flapping around and killed my cam lobe, giving the noisey tappet, err noise. All the needles then feel in the sump and then went though the oil pump but thats another story.

Ned Autolusso to the rescue for a new cam.
