Re: 302 ticking/tapping...
Are the valve guides in good nick?
Is there clearance inside rocker to stud?
The rocker is held there by valve tip..Right ?
Check that rocker is not hitting valve keepers or retainers..
Have you changed rocker to another position ?? To see what happens?
Have you checked that rocker's contact on valve stem is in middle of stem through whole rotation...
Mark with texter and turn engine, the texter mark should be in middle of valve.. If not there is a geometry problem...
Silly question but there isn't a broken Valve spring ????
It has happened!!!
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
