    So I took my valve covers off today and I found two of the followers sitting in the bottom of the head off the valve. How did this happen and how do I fix it. needless to say im pissed :comando:

    huh.. thats odd. you might have 2 lash adjusters that aren't getting pumped or.. i'd try replacing those 2 lash adjusters w/ new ones and see. I've never heard of followers just popping out unless the lash adjuster went bad or PTV caused them to pop off

    I had that happen on my npi motor. It didnt come all the way off but was off the follower and makin a terible noise. I thought i threw a rod. We put it back on and it was fine after that. We still dont know what caused it. Oh well.
