Re: Cleaning after wiped cam lobe
Like SS+Dave I didnt remove the motor after a lobe on a xe comp cam went flat. I poured copious amounts of varsol through the motor...let it soak....drain and then ran a preoiler with a mix of marvel/varsol for 10 min...let it soak for a couple of hours and ran it again.
Installed Harolds 268 and so far at ~ 1000 miles no prob, compression is good, no smoke, no knocks.
What have you got to loose as long as you are careful to listen for impending doom....you would have to pull the motor anyway and if it works...go have fun.
