looking at purchasing a SV5000, most ive seen have this horid liffter noise, a common problem? 180,000 on the clock..... has been serviced its whole life......... should i be thinking about rebuilding if i purchase?
Most 5L's will be a tad clicky... you could just be mistaking it for injectors pulsing

Edit; Just to clarify.
Lifter noise can be worn cam or worn rockers or broken rocker bridge if the noise is consistent at all rpm.
Lifter noise is usually loudest at idle when cold and quietest at revs when warm.

thanks for that guys, consistent ticking at idle only
