Now switching to a new cable is more on the softer side compare to the 1st cable. Check & adjust to my specific already. Will test more and check is there still any problems.
Keep an eye on the new cable for some time. You dont want to get caught with pants down again. How much for this impromptu fix?
I had ask the mechanic but he didn't recommend me to adjust the teppet.
He say the car all running fine from his experience. If really one to adjust he say will have some power lost.
Does your car consume engine oil? If not, get the tappets adjusted. It wont rob it of power. In fact, when properly adjusted, you get better performance. While you are at it, check your engine's base timing hasnt been fiddled before.

You try looking for those wire concealer, usually use to hide wires behind those desktop PC. Use that to put your wires in, then will look neat......lol

Wira update

So,Otw back home I juz drop by the shop I usually repair my car. Went for adjust tappet.
What I knew after adjust,the sound is much more lower. And it won't have those drowning sound while down shifting(usually have some pop pop sounds in the exhaust
Teken minyak is more linear.
So RM45 well spent I guess?Hahahahahha

Thx for the advice @parakey

Top half of the engine looks very clean.
Your plug cables, make sure its secure to whatever bracket there is on the valve cover, no good to leave it dangling soo close to the extractor.

Just like when i first go the pajero which got some unknown wiring. It already has front spotlight. We went on to add additional fog lamp to the front, rear spotlight, power height adjusted seat from Honda SM4, twin aircond fan, and some other equipment so u can image the added mess.

End up buying proper relay socket and fuse socket, arranging it in a row and at place it wont disturb access to other component, labelled them, properly taped them with wiring tape. Its better now.

I prefer wiring tape as the plastic casing will rot over time.

Mine is same as your case. Fog light wire reverse camera wire and other unkwon wire don't know for what purpose.
I am really bad at wire thing so I might as well find someone who know how to sort this out for me and relocate at a better place.

You saw how the man did it. Next time you can invest in a set of feeler gauge and DIY

My daughter's tool box have, but I have never attempt to adjust. Need to know how and how much to adjust, but anyway my VR is hydraulic lifters, probably same goes for my hyundai. Chery never touch, Subaru worse, cannot reach......lol

cons of doing swap when u lack experience and you're not familiar with the workshop. because of this, i had to learn about cars. i had zero knowledge about cars before i did my engine swap. hahaha. thanks to @Izso and @vr2turbo and the other gangs for helping me build up my knowledge.

you can read through my old thread here - http://www.zerotohundred.com/forums/index.php?threads/need-advice-4g93-sohc-auto-semput.460300/
same here :smokin:before engine swap i duno shit about car diy. My mech ocassionally "hengggg" which made me start digging google, digging from group adviced and diy.
