    Off to the States picking up parts for the car.

    Well as most of you know, the Trans-am isn't too well. Mother isn't too well either, so really had to get the Trans-am to her so she could hear it, it really makes her smile hearing the car. Knowing this would probably damage the Trans-am I went for it anyway.
    Started a blog a while back, http://www.solent-renegades.co.uk/en...ta-sept-2016-a

    Well its upper end parts I'm gonna need, and new pump. Anyway, got myself a list.

    You sure about the push rod length? I'm not convinced that there isn't something going on beyond wear n' tear, and it isn't uncommon for modded LS engines to need a different length push rods.
    Lot of money and effort for the problem to repeat....

    Yeah I know what you mean that something seems to be wrong. I think oil or lack of caused a chain reaction. so I'm changing every replaceable top end part.
    Will have to take photos and do another blog. I guess, pictures mean everything.

    Just thinking Dan. Are you running running thinner head gaskets than stock? Have the heads been decked? Does your cam have a smaller base circle than stock? Are you running stock lifters or solid or semi solid?

    If your current cam base circle is smaller than stock your pushrods are the wrong length!
    If the new cam has the same base circle as stock then stock push rods will be fine.
