I have a 1986 Ford bronco, Just replaced the oil pan seal, Now when it runs it sounds like the intake valves or exhaust valves are not opening. I have not tried anything yet. Can any one point in the direction to solve this problem

Yes, sometime after a major repair the lifter must refill will oil, keep cranking it and they should pump back up.
