I find it interesting that they used an hydraulic system for the cam chain tensioner but not for the valves!

Hydraulic valves you say?  Would this mean another 12 rattles on start up I wonder.

Yep probably,... saves ever having to mess around with shims though. :002:

I had a V6 24 valve ( car ) engine with hydraulic valve lifters,
where just ONE of the lifters developed a rattle as the seal had gone.

Very difficult to tell which one, and the work involved in stripping the engine down
meant it was "sensible" to rpleace all of them - at a cost of ú20 each + Labour,
and that was around 15 years ago !

( I sold the car because of that ! )

827 !  :047:

I was chatting to another Trophy Owner earlier today,
whose "rattle" only started AFTER having his 20,000 mile service done,
( where they adjust the valve clearances ), but has since been told it is "Normal" !  :087:

Bad luck, I've had a few cars over the years with hydraulic tappets, no problems at all. The vehicles that I've had that needed to be manually adjusted, didn't mind getting the feeler gauges out and turning a screw/adjuster, it's the removing the camshafts and messing about with shims that I've found a pain, that's the worst system in my opinion.
