rite then. the gasflowed head for my ren 19 16v is winging its way to me as we speak-hmmmm pulls like a friggin train!!!!!
anyway, while its off and waiting to be put on, im gunna be getting some performance cams. both kent and piper sell them. tho they have differetn durations and valve lifts. wat i would like to no is this: is it necessary to fit new hydraulic tappets wen fitting the reground camshaft, as new tappets for my ngine cost 200quid!!!!!!! surely withplenty of lube they wont weld together??
also with the cylinder head off i wanna clean the piston tops-whats the best mehtod of doing this? white spirit, redex, carb cleaner, dremel???
i no i dotn own a vauxhall, but my head was done by regal(dont laugh-got it 2nd hand 9k miles for 300quid!!!!!), and any info wud be jsut dandy!!! cheers
