Lightbulb 5Ltr windsor ticking

Does anybody with 5ltr windsor's suffer from ticking or tapping noise when the car is idling. i have heard its common on the 6 and have heard a few people suggest the v8 too. i've notice mine since using synthetic mobil s 15w-40w oil. it seems as though there is a ball bearing in the sump bouncing around making a tick noise every now and then.....

has anybody experienced this or any noise from the 5ltr v8??

Stand next to the L/F headlight with car idling & listen. If it sounds like the ticking noise is coming from behind the bumper then it's coming from the purge canister solenoid. It's controled by the PCM.

I've heard numerous windsor AUs with the ticking noise including my own. Don't believe the lifter thing because there doesn't seem to be a solution.

I had a similer problem, I too thought it was a lifter but it ended up being one of my leads being a bit dodgy and arching out causing the ticking.

Long shot, but more then possible !

Oil has been changed 2000k ago. its still on same level. Next oil change i'll do, i am going to use castrol gtx3 15w-40w

i thoght it mite be a little common. have heard a few au xr8's with same problem at a supermarket carpark. few guys at local ford said not to worry bout it.

Not %100 familia with bedestal mount but I guess adjustable roller rockers would help. Being that to my knowledge the std set up isn't adjustable..
