I am rebuilding my NA '77 924. I have a collection of cam followers which are all second hand. Some seem better than others. I have had my cam reground to its original profile. I have read that you should not use second hand lifters with a new cam. But replacing all new lifters is not within my budget. How do I assess which lifters are useable? What is the trick to maintaining this part of the engine in good condition? I know I should make sure the oil feed tube is clean and working with a new plastic elbow. I imagine using good oil and upper cylinder head lubricant will help.
Also, are there any tricks to setting the clearance? Turning those screws while the cam is bolted down seems harsh to me. Doesn't that damage the valve caps? I was thinking it would be better to measure all clearances, unbolt the cam, make adjustments, bolt it down again and recheck.
Thanks in advance, Jase
