Stripped dissy and cam shaft gears!!!
Hi all, I have a 1967 Coupe De Ville, 429ci.Can anyone help with some idea why my 429 has stripped both, the dissy gear and the camshaft gear?
I have removed the dissy, and it looks like there has been no luberaction going on there, which is why its striped the gears, how are they lubed? Is this a common thing to happen?
Any ideas where i will find parts, i guess ill need a new cam, lifters, dissy gear gaskets.etc etc.
or since there has been a lot of metal worn from both gears, would this mean a total tear down?
Is there some where i can buy a workshop manual for my 67 caddy, covering the complete car?
Any help would be appericated.
