Re: ticking noise

Somebody said to put a 2 foot 5/8 rubber hose to my ear and listen around the header.Sure enough,it got louder towards the header tube going into the block.It gets quiter when i unplug the spark plug,probably because of less exhaust pressure.! gonna replace exhaust gasket and see what happens.

Re: ticking noise

Usually the exhaust gets quieter after it warms up. Keep us informed.
