The oil sump was clogged and no oil got to the lifters. It started to make a lot of noise. The cylinder head gasket all ready needed to be replaced. I dropped the oil pan and cleaned the oil pick up. I took off the cylinder head and replaced the bad gasket and reinstalled the cylinder head. I didn't see any damage to the valves and hoped that the tapping sound would go away after the oil pick up tube was cleaned. I was wrong. Its still tapping bad and I'm pretty sure that there are some lifters that are bad. So I'm asking how do I replace the lifters? Do I just unbolt the cams and take the old ones out and then put the new ones in and bolt the cams back down? Please let me know what I need to do. Thank you! Sincerely, David.
have the same problem?
