Ebay sucks!!

Post  Sambomonkee on 15/4/2012, 1:33 am

An ironically that is the name of the seller on ebay who sold me the head, which turned out to be pretty much scrap.

Got, it looks like its been stored outside, had no oil on it for protection, loads of white powder in the head, cam carrier hanging off, cam seals damaged, and slight indentions around the firing ring. Lifters looked rusty.

He even had the cheek to say wouldn't give me a refund, going through paypal now. Oh and to top it all the picture he used was stolen from redmans engines listing.

Bastard Sad There are currently several nob heads on ebay as I have been dealing with one who bought a set of my zs door cards, I sent him the total invoice several times(including to myself as a copy) and as I had heard nothing from him I complained and he has the cheek to say that its me wasting his time for nhot sending the invoice Evil or Very Mad not worth it sometimes.

anyway if it makes you feel better I have a spare head that is just waiting a final assemble that has had a minor skin to freshen the face up (less than a though iirc) the head is very clean and smells of parts cleaner (not the nice kind though lol) If your interested then you can have it for £75.

Engine fully built but it has noisey lifter or.two, so much for fully reconditioned!!!

I'm hoping some valve lifter will solve it otherwise not sure what to do, I do have load of other lifters I can rebuild. Also at least I don't need to remove to head to fix the lifters.

But yet again eBay sucks!!!

Either it is a worn/faulty hydraulic lifter or its just a dry one and with some use it will quieten down once the oil has circulated within, as you say failing that you can always try some hydraulic lifter care treatment or replace the culprit for another with ease Smile

That pretty much answers by question I emailed you then, I already have 16 lifters out of the other head, so I will spend some time cleaning them up then swap them over.

I can't for the love of me understand why you had a problem with a rattle Laughing

All cleaned out and back together running much better?

No, not yet, have been cleaning a re-assembling the lifters.

I think I might use my lower mileage cams of the spare engine as well.
