3.0 lifter noise
On this 2000 ranger 3.0, I have already replaced the heads with rebuilt ones and replaced the lifters, cam syncronizer and water pump. My 1st problem is that I have seen conflicting info about TDC so I am not sure if my cam position sensor is lined up properly.My haynes manual states TDC on the harmonic lined up at the crank sensor, with #1 piston on compression stroke. I used the alignment tool that came with the sensor and the cam syncronizer . My 2nd problem is the lifters sound like they are not pumping up with oil. I coated them in oil during the rebuild. It sounds as if the drivers side is worse than the passenger side. It has great oil pressure. I am wondering if I might have a blockage and if there is an easy way of checking for it without a complete teardown.
