Re: 98 sc33 top end rattle under acceleration
[QUOTE=kev.basley;1145312]Thanks for that , il get a chain/guides and tensioner on order then.
Im hoping its nothing more sinister, I would expect piston slap or little ends to be effected by temp change where this remains constant.[/QUOTe
do your valves clearence at the same time, these engines pick up rattles here there and everywhere, my bro 97 has a tap at higher rpm because of worn valve buckets but thats nothing to worry about, my chain is due and starting to rattle so i have to do it, mines just hitting 41,000 miles
Its not a hobbie, Its a way of life!
