  • ULYCYC: Dave, you have a flat tappet or roller cam?
    September 07 2022, 11:13:28 AM
  • Just a Six?: Roller cam from Full Throttle
    September 08 2022, 10:50:32 AM
  • Just a Six?: 210-215 & the engine is a bit noisy so I'm thinking a stock style setup will help reduce some of it plus that chain is well over 10 years old. It's smaller because the crank is cut 10  from stock
    September 08 2022, 10:56:12 AM
  • ULYCYC: You cant use a nylon or stock style timing set with a roller cam.  look for a rollmaster double roller set. They are quieter then most
    September 08 2022, 11:59:41 AM
  • 1KWIKSIX: You want the Gold Series RollMaster IWIS chain & timing set Dave.
    September 08 2022, 06:13:45 PM
  • 1KWIKSIX: The gold has nitraded steel gears
    September 08 2022, 06:14:21 PM
  • 1KWIKSIX: That’s what I recently installed in my build (and that’s with a flat tappet cam too)
    September 08 2022, 06:15:42 PM
  • Just a Six?: Thanks Ed It never even crossed my mind using the roller cam. Dave I'll check them out thanks for the info.
    September 09 2022, 07:50:33 PM
  • 1KWIKSIX: Got mine from TA Performance , but other Buick vendors like full throttle , have them too

  • Scoobum: Anyone wanna school me on why one of these engines would have bent pushrods in an unopened 109. I changed the springs on it yesterday and they were the originals on it. I'm wondering because it wouldn't rev someone held it in gear trying to force it. Open to suggestions.
    September 12 2022, 10:10:30 AM
  • Scoobum: I've asked the owner to inspect each rocker for cracks.
    September 12 2022, 10:14:04 AM
  • Scoobum: I checker the convertor and it's a D5...and someone has a 44 on it with an adjustable rod. I've told the owner to pull the pan. This could get ugly...
    September 12 2022, 10:16:11 AM
  • nocooler: flat cam lobe and bad valve springs?
    September 12 2022, 11:14:34 AM
  • Scoobum: He said it was running smoothly and quietly. No compression check was done.
    September 12 2022, 11:32:27 AM
  • nocooler: If it had a taco'd pushrod I doubt it was running smoothly.
    September 12 2022, 01:53:12 PM
  • ULYCYC: valve float result of bad springs as said above
    September 12 2022, 02:14:58 PM
  • Steve Wood: Pretty hard to bend a pushrod without over revving or a flattened cam lobe....I guess someone may have failed to seat the rod in the center of the lifter and it got bent on start up?

    September 26 2022, 10:36:48 AM
  • nocooler: Getting a little brisk to be out in a tent. I guess it’s all good if you don’t wake up snuggling with a bear
