Did they teach you anything about full stops, spaces, and capital letters in English lessons?
lmao...yeah, its a bit hard to understand all that huh.

but as for the problem...if i understood correctly what was being said, i think the noise may be from the lifters sticking. they cause a sound like you discribed fatbt1. the fact that the noise quitened with an oil top up further convinces me its something along those lines.

take your rocker covers off and have a look closely and if your starting to get a grunge build up around your valve stems spray a bit of wd on em and that might help the **** fall off... just remember to clean it up so it doesnt go down to the galleries and clog them up!
