Yes.So, can I assume that the cylinders and rings are OK?
When you had the cams out, did you make sure all the bearing caps went back in their original positions and orientation ?
If the bearing caps were installed incorrectly, this could cause the engine vibration and could lead to serious cam shaft or bearing failure.
You always want to do this with the throttle wide open.The readings would be a bit higher with throttle open.
The cam journal at the bottom of the pic looks grooved, but that might be just the way the light hits it, it is not possible to judge a bearing as good from a pic.Hello Tom,
The caps are still out. The new bearing cap screws are being shipped to the dealer and I will get them tomorrow. The cams are in correct order. The surface of the caps look fine. Can you tell about the cams by looking at the picture? I touched the surface there is no grooves or scratch that I can feel. It all feels smooth.
That is correct, but I believe axenstar's test was adequate for the purpose.You always want to do this with the throttle wide open.
