Well I made 2 short videos the first one is a cold start up (it's in the 70's this morning) and the second is after a 5 minute drive. if I would of driven a little farther in the second video it would be quiet. But you will see after a short drive it is a lot quieter. Piston slap? is what it piston slap sounds like?
All timing components have been changed so i know its not the tensioner
piston slap?? Thoughts?
this is after a short 5 minute ride. It would quiet even more if i drove a little longer.
I just replaced the last video, I posted the first video twice...
After pulling the motor and all the work that went in to it, it's a little embarrassing to start it up and hear ticking. If it slap, I'm just going to ignore it. I just want to male sure I'm not over looking something that can be fixed.
The first day of posting the Video, I posted 2 of the same video. Posted the first video twice. I have posted the correct 2nd video that was taken after a short drive.
i just did my gaskets a few months ago..... I thing it was alot quieter before the change, but i bought it with bad gaskets and did not drive it before i changed them. There was a tick before, but i done remember it this loud
