Default Re: Sl1 engine rebuild

If you think there is metal debris in the old oil, I would not risk trying to run it again. Put that oil through a coffee filter and see if you can get/post a better picture of what the debris looks like. Dip a magnet in the oil and see if it picks up a fuzz of ferrous dust.

I think you could remove the rockers by yourself, it is usually only removing valves/springs/keepers that gets tricky. (Talking about engines in general, never worked on a Saturn SOHC).

PS: If you do catch anything on the coffee filter, and it is not attracted to the magnet, dry it out for a better look and to feel its texture with your fingers.
