Vanagon concerns / hydraulic lifters
« on: June 01, 2007, 11:07:27 PM »
Has anyone ever researched and found a different lifter--one that stays pumped up?

I rebuilt my air-cooled  Vanagon a couple thousand miles ago, and set the lifters at 1 1/2 turns.  It still clatters if only sitting for a day!  It usually quiets down fairly quick, but sometimes one of the lifters hangs up for 15 minutes or so!  And yes, I replaced the lifters and cam with new ones at rebuild.  Any suggestions?  Oh, I did disassemble each one and bled them before initial startup.
