    Knocking @ Head

    this week my cams snapped on me so i replaced them and found out a valve had gone... so me and a firend got the head off changed valve and put head back on!!... all went well til after 40miles or so of driving,... oil light came on then got a horrable knocking noise!!... so we changed oil filter and the oil light went off... all good... but the noise was still there.... so we took the caps off the cams to see that there wasnt any oil under where the caps sit so its scratched all the holders where the cams sit and scratched the caps to... so i believe this is causing the knocking noise... but after all this work and money i have spent... i rly cant afford any more atm... so my question is... is there a way i can sort this easy (not buy a new head etc) or do i see about getting an engine converstion done cause its only a 1.4 twinport engine.. this has possably bee nthe worst week of my life lol!!
