1985 chevy m/c oil at rockers
Thanks for your response and further details, I have to say your unit it not one I'm too familiar with BUT all Engines are similar in many ways and I have done lots of Head rebuilds and gas conversions on Small & Big Blocks.Remember I'm across the Pond U.K.
O.K. Oil ways seem to be the problem here, I can't suggest much as I'm not looking at the Engine.
I can only summize.
I recently had a Cam seizure on a 4D51 Diesel Mitsubishi (Pajero/Montero) un-beknown to me the oil runs up the centre of the rocker shaft its is fed via the the Aluminium rocker shaft carriers. As this vehicle had suffered a Cam Belt break the Valves had ripped the whole Valve train off the top of the head, so clever Me Heli coiled the threads and on the last two had to use larger bolts.
I didn't realise I had blocked the flow of oil?????
So maybe your rocker shaft oil supply is blocked somewhere? possibly a shaft in back to front? or carrier cap on wrong base? I know we all make mistakes but sometimes it is really annoying when it is staring us in the Face and we just don't see it.
2 Heads?? eH!
Please keep me updated, I'll do some more research and if not solved on this session please return with full description of engine and numbers etc.
