Re: Replacing a broken rocker arm

Hi Paul If it's anything like a 90hdi you should be able to replace the rocker without taking the head off just make sure you get the timing locked off :)

inlet manifold

Hi All
I've recently acquired an inlet manifold and was wondering if there are any tricks or dodges for cleaning them out or is it just a case of paint brush and plenty of gunk :roll:
