    Default R16 R17 etc pushrods installation.

    Can a Renault 16 17 guru tell me if the pushrods will fit in easily after head installation if the tappet adjusters are wound right away and the cam is not on lift on the cylinder having the pushrods put in?

    Make certain they are straight, just roll them on a flat surface before fitting.

    Ensure the cups are not too worn out
