My 85 is making a nasty ticking noise
I swear I just saw a topic about a ticking bronco, but all I see now is the "Ticking Noise-Still" topic. Anyway, It just started this up within the last couple weeks. It ticks like crazy, with engine speed. I just did a tune-up and carb rebuild, and it is running great except for the tick. I cant seem to tell where it is comming from, except its in the engine compartment, not drive-train. I have rebuilt the carb, new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, PCV valve, Breather filter, fuel filter, and air filter. Any off the top ideas on things to check out. I would be compelled to say its somthing to do with valves, lifters, pushrods, along those lines, but not sure.
