Hi. I've rebuilt my 1700 xflow with new accralite forged pistons. It's got a bit of a tapping, clackety sound most prevalent on idle. I understand with forged pistons they're slightly more undersize as they expand more when hot. Noise is still the same after 15/20 mins warming up. Do you think it's just the way the pistons are, nowt to worry about? Or could it be something else? I've checked and rechecked valve clearances, no exhaust or inlet leaks, that I can see/feel. Cheers. I've taken a video but can't see how to add to message.
