Default Uhhh.......oops???

November of 2011 my Cobra exhibited all the signs of a dropped valve seat, so I parked it til last week. I have spent days removing everything to yank the engine because its such a royal PITA to work on these cars.
I finally got everything out, yank the head off and see no valve seat problem.
Flip the head back over and find this..lol



Oops.

Well, I always wanted to line the trans tunnel with heat reflective insulation to keep the cabin temps down in the summer, so I guess its not for nothing.

I don't fail often, but when I do...its epic.

BTW these are livernois valve springs with GT cams.
Absolutely no reason for this to have happened.

Let me guess not the passenger side which is not to bad to get valve cover off.

At least you did not sell it and have the new owner say yeah it was a broke valve spring. Ud have kicked yourself.

Doh, well it's not an expensive fix. I know how you feel. I found out what was wrong with my Camaro was an easy fix, but I found out after I had the motor out and now that it's out I'm gonna do a lot of work to make it look nicer.

Sweet. I broke an output shaft on my trans and had to get a tow so I can appreciate the upgrade.

My heat reflective insulation is getting dropped off today, so I will be installing that tonight.
Head is at the shop, and I have the replacement valve spring.
Moving right along....
