cedreex posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustHi all, I have uninstalled my hydraulic tappets from my engine head (MH 1.3 55hp carb). I want to know how do I check if they're still in good condition or not ? I thought I can leave them for 1h in a bowl of oil for example but then what's next ?
Recently when cold, my car engine sounds a bit "tappy". It quietens down once warm, and I can only hear it when the engine is revved a little. Sometimes it goes completely. It might be worn tappets. Are they expensive to replace? Is it cheaper to try an oil change?
