    Flat tappet cam failure

    Flat tappet cam failure

    When I started this project I thought it was a simple fix, hoping it was only a bad rocker arm, then thought maybe it was a lifter etc. etc., now I have it tore down to complete bare block after checking a few bearings and seeing something went through it. After seeing how much damage was done...
