Clearance around the lifters

Post by raveen21 » Tue Sep 12, 2017 7:02 pm

Hello to all. Going to put a 288 or 298 cam soon.
Just wanted to know if the head area around the lifters can be cleared without removing the head.

Yes can be done without removing the head but you have to make sure that you get ALL the metal shavings out as you go otherwise it ends up in your oil and bearings.

Did mine recently for the 288 estasImageImage
