Re: Urgent advice needed

What kinda horrible noise? Was the new engine running fine when you put it in? Humming, thumping, whining, rattling?

Re: Urgent advice needed

What was your oil pressure like? Are you sure it hasn't just dropped a cylinder from a dud sparkplug/lead?

Is the noise a knocking noise?

Just like a Tsunami.

Re: Urgent advice needed

if it continues to turf the push rod out and bend it it could be a worn cam shaft, crank it over with rocker cover off and look at rockers if some arnt opening as much as they should there is ya problem
