ive got a small problem...
its on my OM.603.912 engine...
ive got a ticking noise..
ive found the FAULTY part..
it is one of my "lifter holes and lifter?"...
there has been some serious "dirt" between it and the cyl.head (CH)
the dirt has made so the lifter has been " partially stuck" so the piston has pressed the valve with lifter up
.. i know that the valves are OK..
i wounder if the scratches makes the lifter loose oilpressure and ticking, or if the lifter is broken?
maybe it helps with just a new lifter and "fine sandpaper" on the scratches?
