are the links above^^^ the valves i need/how much machining would it take? Would I have to make everything from scratch?
Yes now it is looking like i might just have to do a valve/chain overhaul, the camshaft is intact and everything looks normal when I take off the valve cover.
Never thought about the vacuum pump, although the brake booster seems to continue to 'leak' into the floor panel little by little. I had to pull out the original floormats and insulation when I bought it, prev owner must have had no idea it was leaking for a while.. The brakes have always worked consistently since I replaced the rear set but when on an incline the last few months I have needed to press extra hard to keep from slipping backwards. I didnt know the booster would affect the engine.. so maybe that was the cause? Any physical signs to look for to show if vacuum pump is bad?
Thanks for the EPC link
