    Lost 3 lap pads

    The retainers look to be the same all around. I did witness one getting stuck and I tapped it and it popped back up. I just hoping it isn't bent. I am hoping to buy a compression/leak down test kit so I can see if they are seating properly.

    Sorry not lifter. Valve seems stuck.

    So the valves were adjusted a few weeks ago. On the three valves that threw the pad, the springs seem either really weak or the lifter seems stuck. The rocker will barely contact the pad. I can't imagine it being that far out of adjustment so soon.

    I have read on multiple forums about broken valve springs, wrong adjustments, stuck valves etc. So I went for a short trip to my local club meeting in my 240z(l28) and came back with no issue. I tried to start it up the next day and it was noisy (valve train). I opened up the valve cover and found not one but THREE lash pads off. What the heck could cause such a thing? This car had sat for a very long time before I got it and I have less than 1k mikes on it since I bought it. On its second oil change since not sitting up.

    I am also experiencing the lack of a reply box.
  7. I don't plan on buying a whole set. My plan is to source a single spring. I noticed in my search that there seems to be a door latch with spiral springs? Must be for a 280 door.
  8. I have been digging through the archives with no luck I am trying to source a little spring that pulls the latch mechanism back into position inside the door. It wraps around what I would call the striker cylinder? I tried to snap a photo but it is nearly impossible to see. I can tell it is missing as my passenger door still has one intact. The cylinder will just turn freely without it. This I believe is preventing my door from latching. Thanks!
