Dakota, that's me and . . .
my page. The main page can be seen by clicking on the 'www' icon below.
Although I had the lifter tick before the two (2) oil tubes let go. The oil tube failures certainly aggrevated the problem. But the ticking and oil tubes were coinidental. At the time I wrote that page, I was convinced that the oil tubes were the cause of the ticking. But they were not!
I have only 100 miles and will change the oil and filter at 500 miles. I will cut it apart and take some pictures.
I'm currently using Castrol 20W50 dino oil. Like it a little better than Valvoline 20W50.
