Are you reusing your lifters? If so check them before you reinstall them

how do I check them? just see if they compress fully or something?

and can the upper and lower intake be removed as one piece?

First check the roller for wear, and make sure it rolls freely. The plungers should offer some resistance and not stick.

Re: Cam is going in

all of the rollers "rolled" extremely easily but I dont think I was doing it the right way when I tried to compress them. Right now, the upper and lower intakes are off along with the lifter locking tray. The rockers are off along with the bolts and pushrods that were attached to them. I was under the impression that if i'm reusing all the old parts, they need to be put back in the way they came i.e. the same rocker, pushrod and lifter on the same valve it came off of.

also, the only problem that i've ran into is the outside bolts on the manifold, the ones closest to the coolant ports, is that they've stretched or broken. I was able to get 3 out but they were all corroded and in very bad shape. I've still got one in the head now... it's almost as if someone has taken this thing off before and put lock-tite on it.

I'll try and keep things posted as I go along

You don't necessarily have to keep everything in a specific order with a roller cam setup.

Re: Cam is going in

OK, i've got the front accessory drive taken care of and now i'm waiting on my harmonic balancer puller. After the balancer its timing chain then actually pulling it out. Went ahead and ported the throttle body inlet to 70mm with a really good port job.

Re: Cam is going in

alright, whole intake is ported and matched to the heads. Valve covers are painted and i'm debating on painting the complete manifold... Hopefully she'll be done by tonight!

That is true, but it is always a good idea to do so anyways because the parts will have worn and fitted themselves together.

Re: Cam is going in

cam is in the block! Timing chain is back on with the cover and water pump. The ac condenser is bolted back into place already. Today, i'll throw everything back on. Any ideas on how to upload video to the site?

From an android phone?

Re: Cam is going in

I'm a little dissapointed in the sound, but I think my problem is the dynomax turbo mufflers... they are extremely quiet. I've got the video on facebook, lets see about a link here...
