Also did you make sure the spark plug wires are all routed correctly?
September, 29, 2012 AT 2:53 AM
Yes all wires are routed correctly he said one of the exhaust valves are stuck closed
September, 29, 2012 AT 3:31 AM
Did he say which exhaust valve isnt opening?If its stuck closed then there must be a be a push rod or lifter issue?
September, 29, 2012 AT 1:39 PM
Yes there was 3 push rods bent and he said its one on the back of the motor that isent opening
September, 29, 2012 AT 2:16 PM
The push rods were bend because they were put back in the wrong place. The exhaust and intake rods are 1/4" difference in length and cannot be mixed, however they commonly are.
