Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I tried to tighten the not on the rocker arm last night and it did not stop the ticking. I have a couple of questions. First - can you tighten the nut on the rocker too much? If so how do youy know if you have? Second - are the push rods supposed to turn or are they supposed to be tight all the time? Third - is the ticking noise because the spring in the lifter has stuck so the push rod is tapping against the lifter instead of having constant contact with the push rod? Forth - when replacing the lifter should I use a solid lifter or a hydraulic/sprig type lifter? Are there any other tips i may need to get this work done?
ENGINE RUNNING ADJUSTMENT
Do i need to remove the timing chain or just the cover? If I need to remove the timing chain what precautions do I need to take when taking it off and or putting it back on?
Only because I am not an expert is there somewhere I can get a step by step description of what I need to do?
