Does the ER27 get the same TOD as the EA82?

Pretty much the same lifter design tho, so if it's ticking it's lifter oil pressure that's at fualt. There's the pump, and it's seals, and the cam tower seals, so between those two some air could have crept in. If the engine only has 20k, then I would suspect poor seals rather than lifters.
One thing I have noticed is that engines that are left to tick a LOT end up with worn lifters to the point that they will not stop ticking even with correct oil pressure. So there is some arguement to support fixing the TOD promptly rather than ignoreing it. But rebuilt lifters aren't real expensive either so it's really not a gigantic deal.

resealing is a good first step.
and yes the ER27 uses the same pistons, HLA's and other parts as the EA82...it's just an EA82 with two more cylinders slapped on the end and some minor modifications. the internals are interchangeable.
