Here is a short video of the engine if you're interested. Enjoy

after that some oil appeared under the engine..still not sure where it is from I would say the oil filler or the tube of the pushrod but have to check it again.

Hi, not too much to share, but at least the car is on the road again. New wheels and some new parts in the interior (steering wheel, shifter, pedals, oil pressure and temperature gauges, Sparco harnesses) for now. The breaks will be the winter project

Now the bad point. I had some issues with the type4. One of the bushings (?) of the spark plugs had to be fixed -> engine came out, heads off (I repaired all of them)

Since the engine was out I picked out the lifters and pushrods as well to check if everything was OK with them. And I found this:









You can feel the little holes with your fingers on the top and side as well..now please tell me what do you think about it? Material defect or what? Has anybody seen lifters like theese?

I ordered the complete valvetrain kit as a package, so parts should work together well. The engine ran nearly half an hour (oil was OK) so the break in procedure has NOT finished yet..that's why I'm not sure about what to do. Try other lifters or keep theese

the camface on those look almost identical to the ones in my engine. i pulled them after my trip to and from daytona for winterjam last year. those side shots are a little strange. i woulld like to hear some other opinions though.

I don't like the look of those lifters at all and I'm not sure what that 2nd pic is with the deposits. I hate to say it but a "peace of mind" tear down might be in order. With wear like that, even on a new motor, I would pull it all out and check all bearings and wear surfaces. Probably not the answer you want to hear but that's what I would do.

Bad casting is my guess, if the bores are OK you might be able to get away with just putting in new lifters.
