allright, i have a question about the valve adjustment on my truck...
it is a 92 reg cab long bed with a 355 (.030 over 350)
tore it down to replace the headgaskets and pulled the heads, and intake manifold, while replacing the gaskets i noticed the clip that holds the hydraulic lifter together had come apart.
so i got a new set of lifters and installed them, adjusted the valves per service manual. however i did not prime the engine with oil beforehand. got it back together and fired it up and seems to run like crap...
my question is, since i did not prime the engine, do i need to readjust the valves and see how that does? i'm sure the timing is set, i'm kinda lost on this and need the truck back asap... thanks for reading and replies.
