  1. A Picture is hard to take, and a bit hard to explain..Never-the-less.. Getting ready to start the Vitesse for the first time in 22 years and noticed when the engine was turned over by hand that number 4 push-rod would repeatedly 'fall out' from under the rocker ball. And that was with all the valve clearances set. I removed rocker gear as I assumed something might have fallen down the follower and was pushing the rod to one side, nothing there, and then noticed as I screwed the gear back down that the push rod pulled the rocker and shaft spring away from the pedestal by about 3/4 ml and the push rod was hard up against the 'chamber' side, Took the rocker gear off again and found that particular push rod was bright and shiny all around at that point and worn to a slight taper! The cause is that chamber has a large dag of casting metal near the top that hasn't been ground off the side! The intriguing thing is that, as it is the original engine, then it must have been like that for the last 49 years. A few minutes with a die grinder should fix it. Has this been seen before? Cheers Chris, Tasmania
  2. Can’t find the original gap settings for the roller rocker shaft on my Spitfire 1500. Currently set gaps as per standard set up and it’s way noisier than it was. Any idea what they should be? Tried suppler and they don’t know!!!
