    A quick question,

    Thers is a lot of mentions around forums of worn cam adjusters causing chain slip on M271`s. ( although to be fair it is the crap chain ) I`ve got the top half of my engine stripped at present, what should I look for regarding the cams?
    I`ve not stripped the cam sprockets down as it`s not been needed to do do the valve job. Plus the build up of crap in the head exhaust ports was bad.

    Thx

    Coli.

    OK, sprocket teeth are fine, no wear in the troughs or `hooking`. I was worried about wear internally.

    Thx
