Re: [DML] Loud Ticking Noise

Hi Toby

You are absolutely correct, and I ain't gonna argue with you with 
regards the DeLorean engine except.... the 24v PRV has actually got 
lifters - it's a really bizarre setup, still SOHC but with three lobes 
per cylinder and seperate rockers for inlet valves, with the exhaust 
valves worked by a V-shaped rocker running of the central lobe. Each 
rocker has a little lifter which run in a line directly above the camshaft.

More a point of interest really :-)
