Hi Guys, I'm rebuilding a crashed 1.6 K-Series engined car, has fast road cams and vernier pulleys. Its sounds abit knocky/tappety from the top end and wondered if this is normal when cold, i have a video here on youtube of it running for a brief moment, penny for your thoughts. engine was also resting on the chassis so maybe some noise from this contact? also it seems to have sat for about a year without being started.
i did run it a bit longer later on and as it warmed it did quieten down a lot. still let me know what you think.
