My good old BKD (2005) failed last month ...... with only 90k on the clock
One exhaust valve has broken off and fallen into the block, the broken part was stuck in the piston and didnt bounce a lot so no damage to the walls and little damage to the head, phew :D
Several weeks later I have a skimmed head with new valves and one new piston.
When i bought this car last year it was noisy like a lazy/failed tappet or two and wondering now should i replace the followers as well? They are not cheap and at £25 a pop will be additional 400 pounds which i dont have
I've made two short vids and asking our experts to advise me if this play is acceptable? I have 4 followers with such play, the rest are rock hard.....

In advance, thanks for your help
