Well got the problems fixed I hope. Heading to the track today, and hope it is a better day than two weeks ago. Pulled the tank and opened up the vent cap, It was plugged up just enough to cause problems. On Mondat I pulle the valve covers to change the gaskets and found #1 intake rocker and stud just laying there. Luckly the only damage that was done was to the lifter. Also had a broken motor mount on the right side. Everything fixed now so shoul be a good day. Supposed to be cooler today too.

oops! Good thing you found the damage.

 

Did you change both motor mounts?

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

So the stud came loose?

 

What is the size of the stud?

 

I would have thought the lifter and stud would have hit the top of the valve cover before coming off.
