Help me out here, how does this thing go back together? Is anything missing?

the FSM says nothing other than showing that you remove the 3 flat head screws on the cam nut cover and not the four that hold the two halves of the actuator...

Lars?

I have already talked to him about it. I honestly never took mine that far apart and never hope I do.

all i know is that spring pin thing pokes into the fixed portion to lock it down when there is no oil pressure in the chambers.

Where is the little round piece that goes on the other part? I hope you didn't lose it.

I've got pix somewhere when I took mine apart to study it.
I'll have to go find em...

In the very first picture - was the inner spinny part never separated from the outer part?

I've got one off of a motor that cocked a lifter with just a few thousand miles. It was Andy Hollis' CSP engine. Apparently they aren't made to rev to 11!

Shoot me a fair price and I'll send it out. Only catch is that I won't be back in Dallas, and won't be able to ship until November 13th.
