Hello, recently got help from an expert for a ticking noise and I thought it would be the lifters, well two weeks ago I dug into the engine to replace the collapsed ones but none were, they were all rock solid wouldn't depress (roller lifters) looked on the internet supposedly hard to depress means they are good. Well I inspected the pushrods and rocker shaft assembly one rocker arm seem to let a pushrod go further into it than other so I replaced the shaft and pushrods with better. Thinking that would solve it cause it is metal hitting against eachother with a tiny gap. So put everything back together started engine still have ticking but slightly quieter. Car seems to have more power if that is a thing. What else could it be read that it could be can exhaust leak or the distributor? I looked at headers and on the passenger side the farthest bolt from the front seems to be broken. Because all other bolts are pertruding out with a washer.
have the same problem?
