Re: Fired the engine up, couple of Q's
Might even be the hole you plugged in the inlet manifold that you mentioned in another thread
If its mechanical, (belt or bearing) you should be able to pick it by listening with a big screwdriver. Put the blade end on say the water pump near the shaft bearing and your ear on the handle end while the motor is running.
Try this on the heads and listen to your tappets!!!! Hear the loose ones!!
If the noise is air leak you won't find it this way but at least you will have eliminated the mechanical sources
The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"
