    just checking, have a very audible click noise that speeds up with engine speed in one of these enignes, just started doing it one day in last couple weeks, its either rocker and/or lifter causing it somehow.

    thanks

    Should be rollers. The 4.3 in my '91 S-Jimmy has factory roller lifters. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    cool, now to figure out how to make sure that its a lifter or rocker thats making the ticking noise, i would thihnk its most likely a collapsed lifter due to mileage, in which is common

    also im unsure as to why this thread is moved to a general 4x4 and modificaiton board, this thread has nothing to do with either or with 4x4 chit chat either, so maybe this board is mis-named ? or is there a hidden subject entry for this board that says "for general automotive engine related posting" ? i posted this thread in the board that it most closely fits, and that is the off topic board, im unsure as to why my off topic posts get remove from off topic board where i post them and where they technically belong, cuz well they are off topic questions - unless there was a general GM or all makes engine and drivetrain posting board- in which there is not... , so i am /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif actually in hindsight, i think s-series board would be the best place whjere this question belongs, since this particular 4.3L is in an s-10, hmm...
    so that makes it my fault for not specifying that its s-10 related and for not posting in s-10 board, but then its sitll technically off topic since this is mainly 4x4 forum technically even though there is one very little-used 2wd board here, s-series.org is where this should belong but they are horrible abount answering tecyhnicla Q's there, full size forum members do alot better job of answering technically-oriented Q's



    thanks
