    funny the intake,that i took off wasnt on very tight.

    so i could of been that.

    prob is now,is do you take a chance,or while its this far stripped,do we just take the heads of and put new gaskets on to be safe.

    think thats the best way to procede,as its very little otlay and time involved.

    be a ****er to build the whole truck up,to have to strip it all again

    definitely take the heads off, if nothing else its a good way to decoke the motor & freshen up the valve faces. Bores can be checked for wear and any ring damage at the same time. I'm around next week if you want me to pop over one eve.

    If you have wiped the lobes on the cam it will have to be stripped and washed it will be full of metal everywhere !

    On further inspection it doesnt appear the cam is worn.i cycled the engine a few times and all the lifters ,lift the same amount.

    Also popped the heads off and nothing wrong there.

    Were wondering now if the original builder loosened some of the rockers and poured water into the engine,afer he and customer fell out.

    Or if he just did a crap / unfinished job of the rebuild anyway ?

    Least he didn't cut the brake lines on his daily as I've seen happen over debts before
