Can anyone tell me what head is used on the 83 engine Hydraulic or Mechanical?Im starting to notice a little more valve noise lately,and also shes burning a little oil when left ideling for awhile.I want to send it in to have the valve seals done and the valves adjusted.Anybody have an estimated cost for this??Thanks

if it is a ZX ...N/a then the head is a P79 w/ cam and rockers...if it is a turbo and an 83 it is a p90a and should be hydraulic....although some 83ZXT's seem to have a cam/rocker setup on a p90a...wierd...easy way to tell just pull take off the oil cap andhave a peek but if it is a P79 then it is a mechanical...just look for casting marks between #1 and #2 cylinders


good luck
