Did I do any harm?

Post  rocketpony on November 5th 2015, 2:21 pm

This is embarrassing to say, pretty stupid of me cause I know better, but here's what I done.
I took off my shaft mount rockers, and I didn't take out any spark plugs. So in taking the rockers off I would rotate motor to close the valves to take rockers off( as u shouldn't take rocker off while the valve is open) when almost done as I was cranking motor with button she got really hard to crank ( of course cause almost all valves are closed, only 2 rockers left on) the motor did slowly turn over. At the time I was just thinking that the battery was down.
So would this cause any damage? Or would the air jus force pass the rings?
Thanks and sorry for the stupidity

You may have given your starter a hernia.

So that's nothing to worry about in the motor?
