Hey guys. Ive had a tapping noise coming from my stock 289 for a while now. I can hear it louder now after I put a new exhaust system on, and its very noticeable. I was wondering if anybody could diagnose the problem as Im guessing its not normal for this to be happening. You can hear it clearly in this video. The car was in drive and I was hitting the gas lightly. Its much quieter when the car is idling in park.
Ran the engine out of oil? Did it all leak out or did you not ever check it? If you really ran it out of oil the engine is toast.
Original sheet metal
Edelbrock RPM Heads and Cam
Summit Racing 4 Barrel carb
Pertronix/MSD 6a ignition
Doug Thorley long tube headers
Flowmaster Super 44's
Is that an original engine with the stock heads? If those are the original heads with the original valves then your heads are probably hammered and clapped out from not putting a lead additive in your gas.
If it is then turn up the radio and party 'till it pukes. What noise?
