KA24E new cam, now low compression
Hello Nissan experts,
I have a 1995 Nissan Pickup, this thing has been kicking my butt left and right but, I am determined to get the thing running.
So, time for the down and dirty. I have replaced the timing chain, oil pump and water pump. It has been running fine until, the lifters decided to make a ruckus so, I replaced the rocker arms, the camshaft and the rocker arm shafts. Now it runs like shit, has low compression on cylinder 1 (0 psi) and 4 (70 psi).The timing is spot on, the distributor is timed properly.
Could the new cam or rocker arms possibly create a low compression scenario on 2 cylinders? I did buy the parts from an online parts provider, the cam is from DNJ. I would test with the old cam but, it looks like part of the cam that centers the timing chain gear on the cam is broken and is will not work anymore.
Any advice is much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
