A weak or partially collapsed spring could also be a culprit.@ this point,every part on that cylinder needs to be ckd along with verifying that the miss is coming from the same cylinder.Then a compression ck,or,leakdown test.

Thanks! I will check out the header again who knows it could still be leaking! Also before I got the truck back an noticed the ticking, it was ran really hard by the guy I let use it said it died twice he was driving it so hard and fast, I also believe it was low on oil when he drove it!

Was this before or after you changed lifters?He could have floated a lifter.Also if that valve isn't completely closing,rocker could be loose enuff to cause a tick or rattle.Same thing if a spring is weak.Are these self aligning rockers?Make sure rocker is contacting valve stem @ the correct point.

Did you learn anything from that experience?

I think I got the loud tick fixed! Took it all back apart swapped out that lifter on that cylinder, got all new rocker nuts and changed exhaust manifold gaskets again, and checked the header for cracks or holes didn't find none. It's not ticking nearly as loud now! It's barley doing it you have to be listening to hear it. I have the valves adjusted- I Un tightened rocker til it cladered made it stop then went a quarter turn like some reremended.. Idk what the same ticking is.. I'm thinking torque converter low on fluid because when put in reverse it starts ticking louder again. One problem right after the next!

Check everything over good for loose bolts nuts,etc.You may just have somethin loose & vibrating around.Ck your trans lines to make sure they aren't rubbing together.Headers can make stuff work loose.Get a stethoscope,or,use a piece of hose to your ear to listen & try to pinpoint the exact location.Just be careful & watch what your doin so you don't get burnt or hit by somethin movin.

I do know I got to pull the trans back out. When I replaced the flywheel the new one didn't have a balance weight on it like the old one I asked a couple different mechanics they said it didn't need it, I still thought it did. Well I listened to them anyways put it all back together to find out it shakes a little when its coming back down from being reved. I should have just went with my gut!!

I meant to ask in the last post,Did the missfire go away after you replaced the lifter & readjusted everything?

You think the ticking could be coming from the flywheel sense it doesn't have that weight on it keeping balanced? I unbolted the torque converter and held it up while the motor was running to rule that out. It sounds right at that area! I'm gonna check the back rockers again just to rule that out also!

If it's outta balance,it could be,or,it could just be makin something vibrate from runnin out of balance.I wouldn't run it like that.You could cause some major damage.

I'm gonna pull the trans back out and fix it. Maybe the slight ticking will stop then, you can only hear this tick from inside the truck and standing on the side of the truck barley can hear it standing in the front!
