Re: rattly top end

Mine is the same since i put a heavyer set of springs in, i also used new lifters.
In not sure if its just the springs or my shims are to small.
i am going to tyr i slightly thicker set of shims in the next few weeks.

Re: rattly top end

TIKFD6 i put an extra hla in this arvo (that makes 3 per rocker now)didnt make any difference.i suspect the nose is just comming from the springs.the cam we put in is actualy a streetfighter from jmm .the springs we fitted had dev5 written on packeging they were alot bigger than factaory ones.who knows as long as it keeps goin like sh#t off a shovel i dont mind a bit of noise.might give jmm a ring tommorow and see what they tnink.catch ya jake

Hahah yeah true.
I have 2 shims in there now, but the ones I got made up are a single piece.
I will let you know how it goes.

Re: rattly top end

About rattly top end but may not be relevant. Replaced the rubber rocker cover gasket with sealant and the noise was much louder. Then used a proper gasket.
