Valve springs

Unread post by Tony8763 » Mon Aug 29, 2022 11:00 am

I’ve replaced the lifters and camshaft and am putting the motor back together. I put the rocker arms and rods in but when I spin the motor manually the springs do not compress.

make, model, year and engine...
does your engine use hydraulic lifters? did you soak them in oil to fill them up prior to the install?

what does your engine use to build up oil pressure? you may have to prime the oil system to get the lifters pumped up.

need more information
