I wish that the old Mopar had adjustable rockers/ lifters. once thay start tapping i have never been able to quiet them down.

Thanks for the replies

JHayman2677 When you pull the valve covers off, I would double check to make sure there isn't anything blocking the oil passages in the heads. Sometimes if it's been sitting a while, the old oil could kinda gunked those up and make the oilpan build up back-pressure. I had it happen on an old 350. I tried the PCV valve and then had to clean the heads really good.

Sorry, didn't mean to repeat that twice!

dadeeoo No PVC. However, I bought a set of Mopar covers from summit racing and they only have one opening on each. I noticed my old covers had a breather on one side and a pvc on the other in addition to the fill cap. I am going to pull the valve covers and look to ensure that somthing is blocking the passage to the breather cap. do you think that i need to drill out a hole or somethning and make a pvc spot on the other cover?
Just curious. if both covers need to be vented some how.

Thanks for responding.

coldknock Does is have a pcv valve? If so it might be stopped up. That would cause the blowby to push oil out of the dipstick tube. If it doesn't have a pcv valve just make sure that the engine is ventilated somehow so it won't build up pressure inside.

As for the rockers knocking, you might have a plunger stuck down in the lifter.
