CARNAGE

alright! now that I just helped answer a question about correct valvetrain geometry lets see what happens when everything doesn't jive just right...

from what I understand my problem appears to be the length of the rocker stud, as I might not have enough threads under the poly lock.

this happened at 6,500 RPM... imagine the look upon my face when I heard it go.

luckly the valves seem to be just fine, haven't had time to do a leakdown yet.

Re: CARNAGE

Damn man I don't know what to tell you, but that does suck. Hopefully it didn't cause to much damage.

Re: CARNAGE

was this rocker hitting the valve cover at all? any chance that particular valve may have been hitting a piston? its rare RARE for ARP studs to snap.. (assuming that's what you used..)

Re: CARNAGE

engine builder says that the studs are too short... and i used 3/8's studs, which do break often.

learning things the hard way.

I learn something new every day... I've never really heard of these breaking.. I know of many around here who use those -- but engine builder (would that be DSS? I thought you put it together yourself) would know more than I would

Note to self: when upgrading to aluminum heads and downing to 1.6 RRs, upgrade...

Re: CARNAGE

I would call myself an assembler some would say to take off the last 6 letters, but an engine builder I am not
