Thanks. As I unfortunately cant remove oil pan in this garage, and I am scared to use seafoam, this is what I plan with oil changes:Yes do not run the engine with the oil that is in it now.
Prime and start with fresh stuff.
Done.You want to do the rockers with the valves on the base circle, if not you could bend the push rod or/and get a bad torque reading.
Did you pour oil on the rockers before you torqued em down?
I can't say if it will be ok, I was not there to witness but I'd send it and see what happens.
After priming the engine of course.
