New discoveries

Sorry wrong link
A video Walk through what was discovered wrong with the strong running motor. .
I disassembled the head . Pulled the overhead cam rockers they were damaged

This one had hydraulic lash adjusters this one wet the bed . Oil was coming through the holes worn through it there were 2 like this.

The corasponding valve stem.

#3 intake lobe was severely discolored, almost black. All lobes were worn as expected at 150k mi . The scoring on the cam bearing journals may prohibit selling it as a regrindable core.
