Question about 1966 Ford Mustang
Just started my 66 Mustang, "A" engine (289, 4 barrel) after not running it for about 2 years Amazingly, it started after about 2 minutes of on-and-off cranking. I ran it for about 10 minutes to warm it up and get the thermostat open. It has a loud click. I was hoping it was a tappet that needed oil. It still clicked when I shut it down. What are some other ideas? My main work on the engine was to change the timing chain and sprockets, the water pump, and the thermostat. What do you think?
Probably a clogged or collapsed lifter,add seafoam to the oil and see if it helps

It sounds like you have a loose rocker. its a simple fix. just take the valve covers off and wiggle the rocker arms. they should move but not much. if one is moving alot more then others then thats probably the one. make sure that the number one piston is at TDC (top dead center) then start from that rocker to the next by hand cranking the engine after checking the rocker spacing. ........i sounds complicated but fairly easy. hopefully i shed some light on your problem...
