289 with lifter chatter leaving me scratching my head
Whats up guys im working on my 66 289 mustang and I have some ticking coming from the driver side of my engine, worried it might be a bent push rod or something so I popped off the valve cover and started looking at all my push rods none are bent cracked or so on, so I put everything back except the valve cover to see if I could adjust my rockersand I finally figured out I had a loose rocker making the noise so I tighted it up and tada no noise.......for about 10 seconds then it started agian soI ttighted more and again no noise for about 10 seconds and again it started I knew I had over tighted my rocker so I backed the nut off and it stopped but of course started again not bad but irritating as heck, its passing oil but in squirts not a free flow like my other rockers are this one the oil comes out in spirts regular inertvals though but most of my other valves have a pretty consistent flowfrom the push rod side
So anyone have any ideas how to fix this? Not really sure where to start
Anyone else have an issue like this?
