So Im putting my engine back together today, all is going smooth. I turn the engine block to TDC. Cylinder 1 and 6 are at the top. I turn the camshafts to line up with the camshaft tool. The cams turn just fine. I noticed a rattle sound when I picked up the head to put it on top of the engine block. SO I didnt find anything unusual. I torqued the head down. i turn the engine upside down on the engine stand to install the oil pump. I hear the rattle again. So I flip the engine back around, and noticed cylinder 2, one on the rocker arms are loose. I was able to take it out by hand. I then saw that the valve was stuck open on the intake side. The adjacent valve was closed. SO I removed the intake cam, took the rocker arm off, and tapped the spring, and what do you know, the valve closes. So i torqued the intake cam down again, rotate it to line up with the cam tool. So now I'm ready to torqued the cam sprockets, and did just that. Obviously the cam will turn very very little, and bind with the cam tool, so I turn the intake cam very little and the cam tool is free. I turn back the exhaust cam, and it wont even budge.
I tried and tried. Nothing. I am looking through the intake and exhaust ports to make sure the valves that are supposed to be open, are open, and the ones that are closed, are closed. And once again, the intake cam, cyl 2 is stuck open again. And I also see that the exhaust valve is open also.
So I just ended up removing the cams, and removing the head again. All the valves are closed.
Im taking it back to the machine shop tomorrow.
Any ideas from anyone who has alot of engine build experience. Im very good at these engines. Very straightforwards build. The only thing I did not do is the machine shop work, engine block assembly, and head rebuild.
