Yeah hopefully anyway
If it doesn't fit,
force it,
If it breaks,
It needed replacing anyway :thumbs:

Who can see what shouldn't be under my cam cover [emoji38]

I doubt it's caused any of the ticking though

There's an o ring stuck to the inlet cam for chamber 3 [emoji38] it came from the cam cover bolts but there's 2 more missing and I think they good be blocking a gallery slightly causing pressure issue and ticking

I just don't know if I now assume it fell off just when I took the cam cover off and the other 2 where fell at some other time or all 3 were in the head and start stripping to find the other 2

Start stripping just to be sure imo [emoji14] I think your right about that one falling off as your took the cover off.

Found another o ring in the head, seems the o rings where the problem must have been blocking the oil slightly, I'm not convinced though think it was more blind luck that the ticking hasn't come back yet

Aw I'm getting one tomorrow anyway [emoji38] I keep meaning to buy a gun for bottom pulleys but I always buy something else instead, I have a normal impact drill for normal stuff but it can't handle a bottom pulley

Air is the only job if you want power. Even the battery snap on guns we have aren't that strong.

Even the air gun won't take off all bottom pulleys, we had a civic in the garage last year I think, and nothing would budge it I've a pic of me hanging off a 4 foot breaker bar and a pic off said bar broken in 2 [emoji38] we got a goliath drill that was for pulleys and another guy grabbed it before I did when the bank closed the garage
