Okay just when I thought I had this thing going back together smoothly a new problem as emerged.
I put a new valve spring on because the other one busted.
Now when I am putting the push rod back in the spring is compressing down as the nut is being tightened. What is causing this issue?
The camshaft lobe is in the up position for that valve.
Should I just keep tightening it down to the correct torque
If not what should I do to change it.
Torque it down and forget it.
Hard to say.
You don’t tell us what type of vehicle you’re working on.
Okay. Since that is the one I replaced the valve spring on and since it busted previously there wouldn’t be anything wrong causing it to be in the up position would there?
If not I can will glad to torque it down and forget. Thanks for your help guys!
Rotate the engine just a bit - 30 degrees or so, The rocker arm should move to relax the spring a bit as you do. Is this a Ford 3.8 V6?
Its the 3.0 Vulcan engine Ford Taurus
