Houston, i have a problem...
Kia HLA isnt working. Beside the obvious difference in length, there is about a .035" (longer) difference between the top of the HLA where the cam rides and the part that contacts the valve. The oiling groove is different, and location of the oil orifice is .050" farther down the HLA than the original fe3.
I installed it and put the cam back in, rotated the cam around so that both valves were suppose to be fully closed and there is significant leakage at the valve.
The package the HLA came had Kia original parts all over it and a kia sticker, along with an Auto 7 sticker. the kia number on the package matched the number on the kiapartsnow.com website and exploded view.
so has anyone else used Kia lifters before? Anyone experienced this problem or has my usual bull[shizzle] luck struck again and i received the one mis-packaged HLA?
