Hi, I'm in the process of changing a bad lifter and would like some thoughts on a couple things.
This is the passenger side of the motor, notice how clean and of good color it is.
This is the driver side and it is dirty and built up with carbon. I would like some ideas on why it is this dirty.
This is the lifter I will be replacing as soon as I can get one stubborn bolt out on the exhaust manifold.
where intake manifold sits
dirty coolant passage. I used a flush when I first got this thing but as you can see, it didn't do it's job very well. I would like some ideas on how to clean up the coolant side of the motor.
