hi mate in the video it does sound a bit too loud it is a bit quiter in real life but if it was the big end would the car still drive noral because it drives perfect at the moment the noise only stared when i got the rocker arms and shims changed.
well i drove mine for 8 months with the little ends gone, if its the big ends it wont last long. i know on a fiesta diesel if you shim the cam wrong the valves touch the top of the pistons, not sure if the same can be said about pulsars cos ive never done it wrong, but anything that requires shimming if done wrong can cause valve to piston contact.8)
not on these cars it wont, they will still run if there 2 teeth out on cam timing.
the only way youll get valve to piston contact is if it throws a rocker and the rocker jams the valve open whilst pistons coming up to tdc
