[FONT=Arial][SIZE=7] I just wanted to say that after some long discussions with a teacher up at my school, and puzzled looks at my eta motor... I finally (he finally) fixed my broken rocker arm... Actually, it wasnt the rocker arm, but the eccentric cam on the inside of it... it was chipped, and was "free wheeling" on the rocker arm, and not allowing the exhaust valve to open on cylinder one. The BMW shop where I bought the part told me that I would have to remove the head... blah blah blah, but it took us like 30 minutes MAX, and they said that they would do it for $1300 The guys at school had fun making knock knock jokes, b/c the engine had a very noticeable knock to it lol Im just glad its fixed... so now I can go back to makin fun of their fords, Jesus Chryslers, etc...
