Engine Mechanical problem
1990 Other Mercedes Benz Models 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 164587 miles
Car is Mercedes 300E 6 Cyl.
Very recent overheating. Warped cylinder. Head.
Head surfaced, new valve guides and valve ground.
After assembly, immediate valve lifter clatter. Checked valve timing OK. Cleaned hydraulic valve lifters and assembled, towers torqued and started again. Clatter still present. Loud like diesel.
Is it thrue that new lifters are needed?
have the same problem?
