Engine Mechanical problem
1982 Lincoln Continental V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
Have overhauled 302 CID engine - replaced camshaft & lifters, had heads rebuilt, replaced timing chain & sprockets, etc. Compression test passed: 150/155/155/155/160/165/170/180 PSI, #1 -> #8 in order. Started on second try, seemed OK except for a ticking noise suspected to be lifter(s). Moved vehicle a short distance. Now makes pop or bang noise every couple of seconds and will not idle. Have replaced spark plugs, added gas treatment and injector cleaner to gas tank, no improvement. Will repeat compression test tomorrow.
have the same problem?
