attempted valve adjustment today.
all was going well and I had finally figured out how to get the shims out.
I spun the crank to check the other 8 valves without replacing 2 of the shims I removed. As result I nicked one of the buckets and put 2 small divets in either end of the associated cam lobe.
The bucket does still seem to hold a shim OK.
I found the 2 chunks of material that came out of the damaged bucket so I know they are not floating around in the head.
My question is can I just let this go or do I need to start pulling cams to replace the damaged bucket. I have NO IDEA how to do that so I am hoping I can just let it go.
AGAIN, The bucket does still seem to hold a shim OK so maybe I dont need to worry about it?
check out the attached pics.
I included a pic of an undamaged bucket for comparison
