Alright you engine guys...here's a question for you?

In most of the decent running SBC's that I've seen and heard...they have this distinct sound coming from them.....

A "clickity, clickity, clickity, clickity, click...." as they idle.


What causes this? And what is your take on it...

Love it or hate it?

"Anti-pump" hydraulic lifters will make a fair amount of cliking/ticking noises unless it's at WOT. BTW I couldn't get the link to the soundclip to work.
