Re: hydraulic lifters or not on a 2.3-16???

Reason for concern is that I get a cold start 'clatter' that immediately goes away, just like a car w/ hydro lifters. But then someone suggested it was the chain tensioner. I'd like to know where to start. [/B][/QUOTE]

I have a 190E 8V, and there is NO clatter on starting. Sounds more likely to me that oil pressure is low from worn bearings, or a problem unrelated to oil at all.
