hey fellas, it's spring time again and I'm going to be getting the car out soon.
If you have a chance check out the video and let me know what you think.
I had a lot of great responses initially but none after posting the video.
I'm thinking of possibly installing a high volume pump, what do you think?

To be honest, my engine makes much more noise than that, and it is perfectly fine.

With high performance engines and old engines in general, you shouldn't expect it to be as quiet as your wifes new car. It just isn't going to happen. In the later years of the 302s production run, Ford actually tried valve covers with dampening material on them to quiet down noise.

Do not run a HV oil pump in a engine with standard bearing clearances. You will have 60-70# of oil pressure at all times, the pump will be in a steady state of pressure relief, and the cam and distributor gears will be under increased loads. Over time, it is likely to actually cause a failure.

lifter preload is .045

While that number is in the middle of what most consider normal, you can run more. 0.060 is still within the recommended range for most stock type lifters. If it is the lifters, that should help quiet it down some.

Doing more with less, or something like that.

Thanks for the advice. I was trying to stay away from the hv oil pump for the same reasons you mentioned.
I'm not worried about the tick hurting anything, this is my second 5.0 build and the first one I sold with 90,000 kms on it, just find the ticking annoying at times.
The next time I have the intake off i'll try increasing the preload as you suggested.

Sure it isnt mechanical interference from the rockers to valve covers ?
Sounds like that to me
