Valve lash pad. I've had one come off before- the rocker fell off and the lash pad (which is held on solely by the rocker) was loose amongst the valves. Boy did the engine backfire (dead cylinder) when that happened.


Mine was caused by incorrect valve lash, but broken parts can also cause that to happen. In any case it results in a dead cylinder.

finaly got to up to the shop to check things out after i got the front end torn apart... there are 2 of the valve lash pads off.. Found both of them... Another is turned a little bit and the corner of the part that sticks up on the sides is chipped off.. I think after i put them all back in and adjust them i should be good to go in that area.


What you all think
