I played mechanic with my 1994 toyota camry 2.2L. I figured it would be easy to just put a gasket in and it would all be better. So I had a blown head gasket confirmed by my local mechanic who wanted 750 to fix it. I dont have that. I got the head gasket back in and the timing right. but when my car starts it vibrates very atrosiously and spits exhaust out the engine. its white so i know its just the water, but i know thats bad. I now to my cams out again and I have the problem of keeping the clearence from the lobes to the lifters in the right position. the cams are just too tight on the head and they wont spin unless forced by the pulleys when the car is started.
I am worried that my cams will break and I dont know why the clearance goes away when I torque down my bearing caps.
