Hey guys, turns out exhaust pushrod is bowed, got a spare alloy set so Ill chuck em.Can I have a guide to replacing? Do I just open the rocker cover, pull en out and nee ones in?
You'll probably have to remove the rockers to do it.It is imperative that you only torque the rocker block nuts to 5 ft-lbs. NO more than that. They strip out very easily, and the book says 9 ft-lbs, and that often strips the threads out. If that happens, it escalates from a simple push rod replacement, into a problem with installing heli-coils or inserts into the head,and they are oddball British threads that it is difficult to find inserts for.
I thought as much, does removing the rockers mean I have to touch the valves at all?
No, but the rockers touch the valves. You'll just have to set the lash at zero again, with the new push rods in there.
