update on money shift

had a money shift last friday when i got cut of and swerved to avoid collision then had another car bearing down on me in my new lane…noticed a ticking shortly there after at that changed with engine speed. got right over to mechanic.

opened it up this week. turns out a shim popped loose, bent the lever arm and the cam. no other damage. going to replace all those parts but able to spare the majority of the head.

still a money shift of sorts but not as bad as initially expected.
