WHY DO ROCKERS KEEP BUSTING 3.3 MOTOR


there is not enough spring travel on the valves The rockers used are incorrect for the cam used and the lift of the cam is making the rocker push the valve too far down and is binding up the spring. You may have something else wrong like extra spacers under the valve springs , valve guides not in far enough valve spring retainers not correctly positioned or wrong inner spring that is binding up. Turn the cam over carefully and see it the distance in the spring coils disappears before fully open the valve.

On a '94 GT Legacy Subaru i went to do the crank seal and loosened up the belt. The cam on the drivers side spun i went and re-aligned it to spring tension and it was about 10cm off the mark at sp


EAsy just look for the timing mark which i think is on the back of the cam ,a slot on the end that should be horizontal with head face,but turn engine over by hand before you try to start it to ensure the valves clear

How do I select valve spring for JR Motorsports cam part #prc104?


If the cam info doesn't specify I'd go to the Comp Cams website and find a similar grind. The Comp site will recommend a matching valve spring and I'd go with that recommendation to use with your JR cam.

Good luck.

Vt500 c ticking sound. Cam chain tensioners pretty sure its the cam chain tensioner springs. lost their spring If its been making this noise for a while what else would i need to replace. cam...


You have a self adjusting cam chain tensioner. It is sold as an assembly. Take out the complete unit and replace it with a new one. The springs are not bad , the device that keeps the pressure on the tensioner is slipping causing a ticking sound.

Washer shakes and clicks when spinning even when empty I changed the clutch and it still makes the noise and shakes.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If you look at the section on "Machine Base Parts" you'll see a number of springs and vibration pads.

It's possible that one or more of the springs or pads has come loose or broken.

In order to get to them you have to remove the cabinet.

Here is a description of how to do it.

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for top load washers. It has a troubleshooting section that describes the reasons for excessive walking or vibration.

WHIRLPOOL TRANSMISSION DESCRIPTION AND SPRINGS

If it's not the springs or pads, you may consider that the "Agitator Cams" in the transmission are not raising the Agitator Gear high enough (about 1/16" ) when the washer goes into spin mode. Even if they aren't broken, they may be worn enough that the agitator shaft isn't raised high enough to disengage.
See the description of what the Cams do in the Service Manual.

We had the same problem, excessive vibration and noise during the spin cycle.

In order to solve that problem, :

Assuming that you know how to remove the cabinet, agitator (you don't need to remove the tub), pump, motor and transmission the agitator cam and follower use the same whirlpool part number 62580/01. This is a plastic set used to raise the agitate gear on the shaft.

Pull the transmission.

Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace).

Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (15 oz.) of 80-90 weight oil. (I replaced ours with non-detergent gear oil from a local auto parts store. A lot less expensive than that from Sears or Whirlpool)

Remove the transmission cover.

Pull off the spin pinion.

Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.

The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams.

Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.

Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.

The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)

It sounds a bit complicated but it really isn't too bad and (For a $15 part, saved buying a $170 transmission.)

Following is the Whirlpool parts list for their commercial washers although the consumer models use the same part numbers.

While changing belt on volvo 960 1992 moved the camshafts how to sincronize agaein


First, your belt should have marks on it. they line up to the marks on the cam and the mark on the crank. If you don't have marks, check the old belt. If it has marks, transfer them to the new one. They are important and make the job 10 times easier. Your crank should be on tdc, on it's mark, and your cams also, on their marks. Once there, the cams can be clamped so they don't spring. If you have to move the engine, pull some spark plugs to take off the compression. Turn it over with a big socket on the crank shaft. Don't forget the pistons will hit the valves if they are not moving with the crank, so do the cams first, to get them out of the way, they only spring a little, 1/4 turn at the most. Get it lined up, get the belt lined up, pull the pin on the tensioner, you should be all set. Hope this helps.

New cam went flat in 30 min. 2nd cam wiped out also cams were crane hydraulic/ break in was followed.


Valve spring seat pressure too high, or valve lash too tight. In some cases a big-lift cam, with a stock set of springs causes coil-bind or "spring-stacking" and that will wipe a cam flat in about 5 minutes. Used lifters on a new cam won't seat properly, causing an uneven wear pattern. Doesnt take much to start a problem on a flat tappet cam, but hydraulics are usually more forgiving that solid lifters.

Whirlpool top load belt driven commercial


there is no easy way to put the cam bar back under the pressure spring. what i usually do is try to start the cam bar at the short end and force it back under without removing the bolt that holds the spring to the transmission. if you cant figure out how to do this the only other way is to remove the transmission.
if you do take the trans. out then be careful to not let the agitator shaft ball fall out or the unit wont spin when you get it all back together.
the spring is not very strong and if you can get both hands under there, then just wedge the spring up and then try to force the can bar back in. its not easy but keep trying as pulling the trans. out is alot harder.
