valve/lifter noise in a ea82
Posted 15 November 2003 - 07:24 PM
i dont know, i only ran the engine for about 2-4mins, to check oil presure and coolent flow, and to look for leaks, no leaks of coolent, oil, or exhuast as far as i can tell, the noise is load, like a rocker is hitting the cover, but that is not happening, any clues as to where to look

Since this was a recent build from the crank up did you verify, clean, and instal the lifter gallery oil pressure relief valve under the cam lube tube banjo connection??
And the 0 ring in the head gasket for the oil passage to cam case - did you "glue" it in place with some grease? They are known to shift out of place and block oil flow to the above mentioned gallery.

Here is a link to Cameron's article that Skip mentioned if you want to check it out.
Skip, the oil passage o-ring between the head and block is part of the head gasket, no need to glue it in place. I believe that you are thinking of the cam case o-ring. The one between the head and cam case. That is the one that doesn't like to stay seated in my experience.

I was thinking about the 0-ring needed when using Copper head gaskets - thanks for the correction.

but i didnt check the relief under the banjo bolt
and it is between the rocker box and the valve head

its common for a subaru to have liter noise, its more of an annoyance issue rather than an mechanical issuu.
i have heard them sound like a rod knock until they start to quiet down. take her for a run and see if that fixed it!

id get so mad at its noise, id leave it in first (Damn auto) and rev it out as fast as it would go 7-7500 sometimes it would tap worse, sometimes it would stop.. i always tried to blow that car up, just cuz it was one of the $200 dollar needed a timing belt and a paint job car... the motor finally went the 4th time i hydrolocked it with muddy water in one day... damn south texas floods toughest car EVER
