HELP! Valves Stuck!

jared_wiesner 11-28-2012 05:22 PM

Do the valves not close as you rotate the engine? They must or they would be bent. Given that the firing order goes from 2 to 4, it makes sense that they would both have their valves open to some extent at the same point in the cycle.

See the two sets of cam lobes both pointing roughly up. Those correspond with cylinder 2 and 4.
(I apologize for the blurry picture, I had to zoom way in on a pic from my cam install DIY)

I thought that might be the case, but wasn't sure. I'll put everything back together and get a compression / leak down test done to make sure it's all sound.
