Rocker arm play?

1032 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  khomer2
Just did the valve cover gasket’s on my 1999 E55 AMG. The car has 215k miles on it and I was seeing how much side-side movement the rocker arms have and it seems like they actually have a little bit. Is this normal?

Any ticking or noise issues?
Could be very worn, or perhaps, not adequately/correctly tightened before?

Then I wouldn't bother touching them. Keep them in you mobile calendar on an interval reminder to check them (mentally).
