I just dropped a 2.0 in my bunny and i out a tt 268 in it. It ticks really loudly when i am just barely on the gas and rolling. If i rev it while not in motion then it doesn't do it. Anyone have any ideas? Sticky lifter? Its really annoying and i want to get it fixed. figured you guys might know...

Re: ticking in head? (83 bunny)

are you useing hydrolic lifters? I had an 89 Audi 90 that did that.. its just a noise that the lifters make.. I was told to use a heavyer oil and sure enough it cured the noise.

Re: ticking in head? (H2oVento)

I am taking the valve cover off this weekend. We are gonna see if we can figure something out. If we can't see anything then i'll try the oil. Thanks again man...

Gots to be the hydraulic lifters, assuming you used the x-flow head. If you kept an earlier head that is has solid lifters than adjust them. Hydraulic lifters are only like $10-$12 a piece and not that hard to install.
