As the new owner of said head, I can tell you that there was one lifter with about 0.020" clearance. So tick tick tick.....

Interesting. I had plans to go through that head like I am about to go through my '02 head. Gordon, which lifter was it?

Trey, did John do new valves in that motor? That '99 head had about 100k on it when the piston vomited all over it.

My BP4W head made the same noise, all shims were in spec, I wouldn't worry.

But if you want to worry, theres also the Rotrex. You don't have to go n/a! Jimmy from fujiracing is dropping the BP motor and doing a ITB 13b swap. So he's selling his ITB parts.

I didn't note the cylinder at the time. As I was tearing it down I saw some unusual daylight under one cam. I stuck something in the gap that was about 20 thou, mumbled wow and moved on.

Now, that'd be a first.

Does it do it cold only? Then it's piston slap maybe.

Possibly, its very faint too, but probably eating the motor...another reason why cold weather felches my anus.

My engine made the exact noise before it gave out! The built one!

Hustler, seeing colder temps in Texas finally?

I thought miata valvetrains were noisey until I heard a e30's on a cold morning. I thought something was going to come thru the hood.
