258 is tic-tocking....help!
So after months of carburetor troubles, manifold leak troubles, etc, I finally have my 258 running smoothly. It's a truly beautiful thing. EXCEPT.
I have a ticking sound coming from the mid-engine area. Either from the head or the area directly below the head. The ticking will start, increase in volume for about 4 seconds, and then dissapear for about 3 seconds. Then it will do it over again. It's like clockwork, the 4 second/3 second thing. It's certainly much more noticable on a cold cold start, but the ticking doesn't ever completely go away. My engine is running smoothly otherwise... I've flushed the engine out and changed the oil, gone to different viscocities, and I can't get it to go away.... Any help and or ideas as to what the problem could be would be greatly appreciated.
