Hey everyone, got my 2003 Dak SXT now with a 4.7! Just wondering though, this is my second time putting it back together. I have been trying to get rid of the ticking noise and I feel like there is nothing left but to rebuild the bottom end. I have done the lash adjusters, all 16 of them, I have new exhaust manifold gaskets, new timing chains, adjusting arms, tensioners and sprockets, I have really done and checked everything that I have seen on this forum that could be the problem. It doesn't seem to be causing any loss of power or anything its just really annoying.
The only real time I notice the ticking is when I let off the gas. ON the gas or accelerating I do not hear it at all. Any more ideas for me? Im kinda running out of money and time to be spending on the motor when I could spend it on my axle swap!
