Working on my 19 TT question is i'm getting ready to pull the cam to put in adjustable tappets is it possible to blow out the internal oil line when I take the cam gear cover off ? Thanks for any help in advance

yes it can be blown out. But with the cam gear off, take a length of speedometer cable fray the end a little like little fingers and by hand twist it thru the tube so it grabs anything that might be in it. Every so often pull it back out and check. Problem with just blowing it out, more then likely anything plugging it will just end up in the funnel and get washed back in and down.

Chris, please let us know what you find if you use the cable trick would you?
I blew out a plugged line a couple years ago and wonder about it.
Great question.
:-)
