Loose Rocker Arm
Any ideas to to why after a 50 mile run one of my rocker arms (intake) came loose? On my small block car, the rocker arm came loose after a 25 mile drive with the engine running at a constant 3000-3500 RPM.
This is not the first time this has occurred. I have had to re-adjust this same rocker several times now over the past few weeks. The adjusment is further down the the rocker stud than on the other valves. I'm afraid I might be experiencing cam lobe going flat.
The motor came with the car and has a very lopey idle 10hg or so due to the cam. So far, it has about 2200 miles on it. 1500 by me. The problem starting about 3 weeks ago.
Any help/ideas would be appreciated. I'm not opposed to pulling the cam but I just got the car running great after a Edelbrock RPM Air-gap 2*4 installation and was hoping to putt around until I get a new BB installed this summer.
