Hey guys well what I have going on is that I am not getting enough oil to the head and that is causing a tapping noise. I am 90% sure that not enough oil is the issue I have look through my oil cap and my friends oil cap and mine looks bone dry compared to his. I know that the oil pump and oil pan clearance is not an issue, thanks to Froth and his thread. What can you guys suggest for me do. I have tried to clean the VTC Oil Control to see if it might be dirty or messed up and it doesnt seem to be the issue. I dont know if maybe a oil galley might be blocked but I wouldnt know how to check that besides removing the head and honestly I would like to save that to the end if need be. :up: Any advice would be helpful. thank you in advance.
