I redid the top end of my 1988 88se and just found out that I forgot to install one of the 2 locator pins in the top of the head (head to rocker box).Should I take it back apart and put it in,or will it be fine to run?
If it is just a pin to locate the cover and you have no leaks, you shold be fine. If it locates a stressed, or noving part, I would put it in. Am sure your talking about locating the valve cover though, so should be just fine.
No,it goes between the head & the rocker box.The locators are hollow and the head studs go through them.There are 2 on the bottom of the head,that fit into the cylinder.Then there are 2 on the top of the head,that fit into the rocker box (that is where I only have one).
