I have a 2.5L 1990 and have had bad ticking. Removed the first 2 lifters and found #1 (forward most) not looking good, top plugged.
Want to replace but when I dropped in the new lifter it fell sideways into #2. Got it out with ease but not sure how to insert it. The book says it has to be on base circle (round part of cam) but I don't know how to do this and can not find it in the book.
How do I know if it is on base circle and how do I change that if it's not...
Thanks in advance.
