Just for reference, what brand was the fuel pump pushrod, and was it a new one?Good idea on the radius. I finally took the oil pan, balancer, timing cover and all of the valve train off,(there goes all my new gaskets), removed the cam and filed the burr off, thru the front cam bearing, and it fell right out. The bronze tip had worn completely off.(((((
You mean in addition to the cast iron and aluminum that is already circulating around in every engine? If you were running a bronze dizzy gear, that would be in there as well.Hmmmm, so does a "bronze-tip" pump rod require regular inspection?
With the bronze wearing away and going through the engine...that can't be good :shock:
Prior to installing a roller-cam (few years back) I never used one...now something else to worry about Unsure
