There must be something wrong in the lifter like the roller missing. The cam shaft would have to be out of the engine for the rocker to sit that low.

Are the lash caps on top of the valve stems?

http://www.landroverexpedition.com/t...ve-clearances/

I had one break up, lead to huge valve clearance and before I knew what was what I screwed the tappet all the way in to restore the correct valve clearance

The caps just sit on top of the valve stems...easy for them to fall off when the head is being stripped.

Yeah, the caps are on. I am looking at pulling the head tomorrow again, and then the lifters. If everything looks OK there, it's on to the cam.

Well, now this is getting bizarre. I pulled the head back off. I removed the first roller and lifter, I'll post the pic here in a second, but it looks just fine. The cam underneath also looks fine too.

So... the head sizes are exactly the same from between the two. The lifters and rollers look fine. Same 3 hole gasket. Same rockers. The height of the valves caps from the bottom of the head "well" for lack of a better term is the same. Cam looks OK when inspected from the lifter shafts. The new pushrods appear to be the same size as well.

I think I am going to put the old head back on for a quick minute just to see what happens. I never made it to the rockers before the glow plug stripped out.

Well, after putting the old head back on and checking the rockers with the pushrods, everything checked out. So, I measured the new head about 30 different ways, it's all the same.

So, I put the new head back on, and now everything fell into place, and looks fine. WTF?

I did the valve clearances, put the cover on, and called it a day.

Julien, you have no idea how close I am to ditching this thing and getting a Td5 or a Puma.

If I had the cash in the bank, it would be done. I would even pay a Priest, Rabbi, Imam, Buddhist monk, Wiccan, FSM Pirate, and someone holding a copy of Origin of Species to all bless/exorcise the damn thing. But I don't have the cash, so instead I fulfill my masochistic needs by dealing with what I've got.

Maybe the problem is that you don't have a wife to tell you what you're doing wrong. ;^}

Well, everything is buttoned up on the head. Cooling system, intake, and timing stuff are still off.

I'm gonna wait until Josh can help me out with the timing belt since a second opinion is always good. Once we think the timing is sound I'll put everything but the timing cover back on, run it for a few seconds to make sure it doesn't immediately blow up, and then if it looks good, finish it all up.

You can run it for a short while with front cover off. Fill the block with water.

Td5 is a good engine... but the 300 is also nice! You'll love it.

I hope things work out for you on this. When it fires up and runs sweet, all the previous stress and heartache will vanish, just think of the satisfaction at a job well done.
You got my respect for tolerating it this far.

Well we are gonna knock out the timing belt today. So here is something I want to make sure is absolutely right, since it cost me dearly last time. I am fitting the crankshaft timing gear, and the last instruction is to "Fit crankshaft gear on to crankshaft and using a soft mallet, tap gear fully home."

So, I can just slide the gear on, and get it up against the o-ring. However I can just pull it right back off again as well. Is it supposed to seat into something, or does the cover and the crankshaft pulley/bolt hold it into place? I just don't want the gear floating around after it's back together.

The harmonic balancer bolted to the crankshaft snout will prevent it from going anywhere.
