How significant is this rocker wear?

The cam looks really good, but rocker arms are showing some wear. I still have the original cam+rockers and have not updated to the hardened ones.

Nothing I'd worry about at all. Looks fine to me. Keep driving it. You got till about 230k before you need a top end like most 103s.

+1 doesn't seem too worn in. Regular maintenance will get you to 230k mark that jake mentioned

I think you need to keep an eye on the wear on the followers. They will probably wear a lot quicker now it looks like the hardened surface has been penetrated.

If these parts have been in the engine for a long time (sounds like they haven't been in your first post) then I'd consider changing your oil a bit more frequently.

psycho2- torque settings?

I'm going to finally replace my valve stem seals. What are the torque settings for the rocker cap bolts?


Thanks,


AL
