RE: [DML] Loud Ticking Noise

I think Chris has the answer.  I quick rev could easily blow an exhaust manifold gasket.  That sounds like a lifter (you don't have lifters) and can be confusing.  Run your hand around the manifold with it running.  If you can hear the noise you can feel the leak.  Caution-don't burn yourself.

Probably the exhaust manifold gasket.

I just put a new alternator on one of my D's today and took it out for 
a test drive. The throttle got stuck wide open with ni load for a few 
seconds, don't know what it got caught on, carpet or otherwise, I 
tapped it with my foot and it dropped back to idle. Now there is a 
very LOUD, ticking noise
