55 Dodge super red ram

Post by Robert » Tue Jun 02, 2020 6:50 pm

I am new to this forum and hemi’s. I bought a Royal Lancer and it needs a lot. I started with the engine and after pulling the valve covers I have discovered that several of the rockers don’t move. The engine is clean inside and out.
I’m pulling the intake and valley cover tomorrow to have a look at the cam and lifters. The car has 135k on it, but a valve job was done at about 90 k. My guess is that several of the cam lobes are flat given the position of the rockers.
Thoughts? Do’s and don’ts?

The rocker tubes gets lots of sludge in them, could be why the rockers are stuck. People forget to clean them.
