Clifford: dzJeepChic's '92 XJ [ongoing project]

The head has never been off so I will reuse the bolts. What about the lifters, do they wear out? By the way when I took the head off I was expecting some clogged water passages but every was clean. The only thing I saw was some of the exhaust valves are leaking. George:cool:

You can do just the lifters if you really need to. Fel-Pro Sealed power replacement lifters are about $5 each. Its been my understanding that non roller lifters get a wear pattern against the lobes and best to replace cam and lifters together but that's me, I like being thorough.

 

Do you suspect a bad lifter?

 

If you do pull them out at least keep them in the same order.

I had a dodge minivan in the shop that had heating issues, some tech. in the past had changed the freeze plugs and left all of the old ones in the block. They restricted the water flow threw the block, so I'd look while the head off. Good luck

No I don't suspect a bad lifter, I wanted to replace them since everything is apart. I think I will leave them alone because I do not want to change the camshaft.:eek: George:cool:

Wow, that's one crappy tech. Very interesting though. George:cool:

can't leaking exhaust valves cause a too-lean condition?

What makes you think they are "leaking"?

Some of the exhaust vales had white ash all around them. George:cool:
