    Default 505 Diesel - Tappet Noise

    Hello All,

    I recently put an XD2S engine back together for the 505 and have it installed. The car drives really well and the engine has plenty of go but it's very rattly. It sounds like loose tappets but I've checked them time and time again and have even replaced the rocker shaft and arms.

    How much oil should be floating around in the head? there looks to be plenty but maybe that's the problem.

    Anyone with any experience with these engines would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    The valve stems wear a groove in the rockers that is narrower than a feeler gauge. You might not be getting an accurate measurement.

    Thanks Leon,

    Have already covered that base with replaced rocker arms with the groove machined off.

    Any other thoughts?
