Thomaspin,

Your discription was so accurate and clear, no pictures were needed. Its also an excellent resource for part numbers and so on. Did do the job without removing the valve covers though and that didn't seem to present a problem. But I'll be doing the timing chain in about a month, so I'll be rereading the section on cam oilers at that time.

Thanks again for taking the time to document your repairs so well!!

Tim -

Yes, do take a good hard look at the cam oilers - an inexpensive part which, if broken, will take out your top end.

I already have them sitting in a box on my desk along with all the parts for the chain and new valve seals (no smoke but why wait). I wish I could do it this weekend or next but family obligations come first.

You do not have to remove the valve covers to do this job.

Martin,

Correct, I did the injectors with the covers on. I only mentioned removing them because Thomaspin's write-up recommends taking them off.

Thanks!
