Does it sound like hammering"? Blown exhaust gasket. Just replace it.

1987 Ford f350 lariat idles louder than usual and makes ticking sound that it used to not do. Been told few times it's an exhaust leak... Not sure. Any suggestions? And how expensive is it to get an...


There is a tick noise that comes from a failed exhaust gasket or cracked manifold. You will have to remove the manifold to replace the gasket. To go to all that trouble I would have the manifold machined to ensure that it is straight as they have a tendency to warp from the heat and from incorrect tensioning sequence of the manifold bolts/studs

1983 f150 with 351 windsor. Recent problem of bogging down when climbing moderate hills. Also sounds of ticking noise, lifters or manifolds leak? Any help much appreciated.


A leaking exhaust manifold could make a ticking noise. So could a lifter or valve. The exhaust noise would be louder under load.
If the carb is running too lean, or you have a vac leak, the lean fuel mixture could make the exhaust leak worse, and cause the loss of power.

WHERE TO LOOK FOR EXHAUST LEAK


There are several areas to check for possible exhaust leaks. i will list them below.

1. Exhaust manifold gaskets - This will be the most common area. There is a gasket that separates the block from the exhaust manifold. these gaskets can fail, thus, causing a exhaust leak at the manifold.

2. Lower manifold gasket(donut gasket) - This will be a possible leak spot as well. This small circular gasket is placed in between the upper exhaust pie and the lower side of the manifold. It basically separates the pipe from the exhaust manifold.

3. Exhaust pipe - The entire pipe can rust overtime, thus, creating small holes along the pipe structure. These holes will cause the exhaust to leak ,thus, filling the vehicle will moderate fumes and causing louder than normal engine sounds during revving.

4. Muffler - This component can also deteriorate to the point that it cannot filter out the noise. It will also cause leaks as well.

You will find the leak in one or all of the areas stated above in the list.

Ignition timing specs for a 1988 volvo 760 turbo wagon ?


It is most likely going to be between 5 and 15 degrees BTDC. I would put it at 5 degrees BTDC. At idle, if the motor is extremely quiet, but the exhaust loud, move it to 10. As you advance the timing, the motor should become louder and the exhaust quieter (at idle). As you increase RPMs, the motor should get quieter and the exhaust louder. This is only true with an injector pump that has static timing (does not automatically increase with increased RPM).
If your engine has dynamic timing (automatically advances with increased RPM), then I would set the timing at 5 degrees, test run. Maybe change to 7 degrees, test run...etc. Basically, don't make dramatic changes with the injector pump timing if it is dynamic. I hope this helps.

Still loud


Have you checked the flex pipe section under the engine, and the gasket between the manifold and cat/flex pipe section? Those are two places they usually start to leak from either a blown gasket, or the flex section rusts out under the protective covering.
