Anyone come across this, With engine running and plug wire removed the lifter clacks install plug wire clack goes away.

The only time I've had something similar happen was when I wiped one lobe on a mechanical flat tappet camshaft.

  • Jims56chevy Said:
Also can you adjust hyd roller lifters with the engine running like on a flat tappet lifter? Or can it cause damage to the needle bearings?

I don't know for sure because I've only tried once to adjust a camshaft's setting while the engine was running. My hearing never was good enough (and it's worse now that I'm older) to get an accurate setting. That, plus all the oil all over the place, even with oil stopper clips and modified valve covers, etc., was enough for me to get familiar with my feeler gauges on a not running engine.
