The oil pressure was good. i got the oil changed, used royal purple, k&n filter, but still have the same results.how much oil/what kind do you have in it? are you seeing oil pressure? very unlikely the lash adjusters are the culprit.. they are pretty much gonna work unless you have low oil pressure.
It's louder than a sewing machine...gets faster of course when pressing on the gas...You need to be more specific.....loud knock....go up with rpm? If you put a cam in your car you will get alot more drive train noise....it should sound like a sewing machine at idle and may get a little valve train noise depending on the lift and size of the camshaft.....
wow i'm surprised, i've never heard of them failing.if the pins were still in, then the chains will have a lot of slack. we had a knock out of the mach after we got it back together the first time, it sounded almost like a rod except it came from top end. i got to looking it over and it turned out to be the lifters (lash adjusters). we changed them, and it was fine. there was a .006 difference between a couple, but i guess that was enough to get a knock.
you can do it without a valve spring compressor, large flat tip screwdriver works finewow i'm surprised, i've never heard of them failing.
to the OP, pull your valve covers and get a new set of lash adjusters put in. should be very easy. you need a valve spring compressor which you can get from ford and a set of lifters. the rest is cake. i bet that is the problem if its not slop in the timing chains.
The right tool only cost $30. Using a screwdriver can and will bend the valve stem. A bent valve stem will bind in the guide and will make a tapping noise or stick open and get jacked up by the piston.you can do it without a valve spring compressor, large flat tip screwdriver works fine
Well, having the right tool is great,but I don't know how you do it but I have used that method on all makes of ohc engines for 30 years and never bent a valve tip or caused any other damage so saying it WILL bend a valve stem is totally BSThe right tool only cost $30.

I have changed my spark plugs, oil, cam position sensor (in the front) and idle air control valve, along with setting my tune to run "richer". Now everytime I come to a stop it runs really rough...HELP!Tuner required. If you have a tuner you could do it yourself, but it would prolly be a better idea to get it dyno tuned.
