Sorry guys for asking so many questions. I figured I would keep these topics seperate.
This is the first full roller and mechanical engine that I have had and the most money I have ever invested in an engine and I am pranoid as hell about it.
I seem to be hearing what sounds to me like alot of mechanichal noise in the valvetrain. It is not ticking like lifter ticking, it is not comming from one specific spot, rather it is all over the topend on both sides of the engine and is definately comming from inside the valve covers. Should a fullroller mechanichal setup make more noise than a bone stock hydraulic flat tappet set up?
I have allready talked to my builder and he said that a solid mechanichal set up will make more valvetrain noise. Is this normal
I also ask about setting lash and he said that he has allready set the lash and really doesnt need to be set or checked right away before some run time. Another concern of mine is that the cam card calls for .030in/.030ex lash hot. Does'nt that seem a little loose?
I do not know is the reason for me asking. I would rather ask and it be normal than take it out and tear this thing up on the first trip.
Tomarrow when i have all night, I am going to fire it up and warm it up and then pull the valve covers and run the valves to check things out. ...H
