[T3] Should I have known?


When I removed the RH valve cover to adjust the valves on my 68
Squareback Saturday I noticed one of the wavy washers on the rocker
shaft had broken.  It was for the intake valve for the #1 cylinder. Half
of it was in the valve cover and I hope I find the other half when I
change the oil tonight.   Should I have known about this?  Are there
any external signs or sounds when one of these washers breaks?  I did
not notice any power loss or more valve train noise.  I'm picking up
some new washers today and will not be driving the car until fixed.

Thanks,
Norman
