Flat-Tappet Owners Beware: Your Motor May Be Silently Grinding Itself AwayAn epidemic of cam failures has plagued owners of older cars recently. That part of the story is well established.

If a flat-tappet cam resides in your car, the information presented here may help prevent expensive engine work.
