RE: [DML] Re: Loud Ticking Noise

Pick up a feeler gauge and check valve clearances.  Easiest way to do it is 
to align the engine at TDC for #1.  Remove the muffler and use a 35 MM 
Socket to turn the crankshaft.  If clearances are okay than check into a new 
set of exhaust gaskets.  I hear the SS ones at Special T Auto are real nice.
