Tappet difference?

Postby Braaap » Sat Sep 15, 2018 11:52 am

Hi.
My G80CS has a badly worn inlet tappet.
I understand the tappets are different to non-compy engine, which i can get....
What is the difference between compy tappets and "normal" G80 tappets?
Need to replace or repair this one.

Thanks

Best to tell us the year of your CS in case it affects the answer. Personally I have not got a clue!

Great article thank u Spriddler.
I have found a new Tappet at JHS Racing.

Another question....
My inlet cam is marked "CI".
My exhaust has just an "E" stamped on the back side, and a "1" and single timing dot... what is this cam?
