    Hi i have a 1994 1800 cc i and was wondering is it possible to change a hydraulic tappet without removing the cylinder head or camshaft and do i need any specialist tools.

    Also could someone just give me a brief rundown on the procedure.

    Many thanks in advance.

    If your engine is like smaller GM engines, then you can buy a tool to compress the valve spring and then you can remove the cam follower, then you can remove the hydraulic tappet.

    alarmnewb, is my post not in english, can't you read it. Do you expect everybody to hold your hand?. If you don't understand then ask for clarification. Infact don't bother.

    This is not a very nice answer, for what is supposed to be a friendly forum.
