Silver Eagle SG Pushrod and cam follower wanted.

Postby IanHardaker » Mon Jun 06, 2016 1:50 am

I took my Silver Eagle for a little 110 mile each way jaunt to work at one of my customers in Jackson Michigan this week... and broke the number 3 inlet valve rocker, it sheared off across the adjuster thread end. The push rod then continued to rattle about for about 60 miles, damaging it. I have a spare rocker, but I don't think I have a spare pushrod, and I can't see if the cam follower is damaged, but I wouldn't be surprised!
Anyone got a spare pushrod and cam follower? Thanks... Ian

Not yet, that's the next step.... I just thought I may be able to find a used one quickly!

Ian - do you do Facebook? The two Alvis sites seem to get more interaction than this AOCBB. You might try there.

No John, I don't do facebook............. I prefer to be more "private"! Too many people know what I'm doing already ;-)
