I knew this day would come.
I knew it was only a matter of time until I was going to have somthing go wrong where I wasn't comferdable working on it. To this point in my Jeep life I have been lucky enough that I have never had to break into the engine. I have worked on the engine on the outside, but never gotten into the inside.
Well the AMC 360 has developed a tick. I get a ticking noise when the engine is under load. When the load is gone, like at idel there is no tick. From the sound of it it is coming from the top of the motor. Valve problem I am guessing, because those are the only things that move up there. How is the best way to trouble shoot this noise and figure out what it is. And then the next step will be to figure out how to fix it.. if need be. I have heard of people who have ticking engines that run just fine. Any help or advise on this subject would be great, like I said, I have never had any experence working on the inside of an engine.
