Re: Noisy Lifters and Rislone?
Ok , here is your answer
The iron duke is notorious for being noisy , PERIOD
the lifters tick , the cam gear rattles once they get some miles on em , they detonate , they got some piston slap sometimes .
I am not being a smart ass here , I am telling you true
GM didnt design it to be quiet.
nor did they design it to be a powerhouse .
Cadillac smooth it will never be
The duke is cheap to make , cheap to run , and pretty darn reliable if you take care of the thing , despite its shortcomings .
And as to your video , it sounds like a definate lifter tick to me , BUT its not the same as being there .
Now the questions I will pose to you .
Did it sound like that before ?
Does it sound better than it did before it had a problem ?
After watching your video , I wished mine was quiet enough to hear the lifter tick , my cam gear rattle drowns out the smaller stuff.
