If the tappets are varnished and carbon-coated, doesn't that also imply
a temperature problem? Or are they generally like this when
disassembled? (Maybe I should leave out the "or", given the temperature
problems so common to our Lycomings.)
When the old cylinders on the Cheetah failed the wobble check at 400
hours SOH, the #4 cylinder also had out-of-tolerance DTC on the exhaust
valve due to a tuliped and eroded valve head. More over-temperature
damage, I suspect.
