Welcome,I have been a master mechanic for over 35 years and am happy to help you with this.

Was this a new rebuild?

Expert:  Virtual Wrench replied 10 months ago.

Also, the rings wont make that kind of noise and even if they did putting oil in the valve cover wouldnt get to them.

It would only lube the upper valve train.

Are you installing a used engine or a rebuilt unit. If its used it wont be coming from anywhere inside the engine because any parts in there wont "Schreech" to speak of. more of a knock on lower bearings or ticking form top end valves but not pistons.

anyway get back to me and let me know more about it please.

Also, If you would rather talk on the phone, for a couple of extra bucks, just accept the offer i will send. We can move much quicker and get this handled a lot sooner. I work from home and the shop and can get back to you whenever you call or if it works good, we can continue to test. Let me know please.
I get notified soon after you post so it wont be long before i can reply.
Thanks for trusting us with your issues.
