Re: Camshaft - ticking

I'm told that the old camshaft wears with the old rocker arms, if you change just the rocker arms, one or more of the new rocker arms may not meet up exactly the same with the old camshaft. I had this problem already, put on new rockerarms and I was left with a tick due to a worn cam lobe. Before the new rockerarms, the car purred.
