I believe they meant LIFTERS,internal engine components of the valve train that''lift'' the valves off their seat. a tune-up would not cause them to make noise.

LIFTER
Lifters are spring-loaded rocker arms that sit on top of the engine and make the cylinder valves open and close.
Sometime referred to as "tappets" and make a tapping noise when the engine is running.

Please read other expert suggestions on what products to use to stop the tapping.

Use Casite brand "Motor Honey" - Add one quart to your oil.
I don't recommend STP oil treatment.

lister for a clicking from the start motor you may need some to help you. if you or your friend hear the click on the starter motor then the motor and it does not turn the engine or goes crunch like its engaged but does not turn,It will need replacing or fixing, if no click this could be the starter relay or the ignition switch or you have a lose wire tot he relay.

Lincoln mkx 3.7l engine swap 2013 into a 2012


Two different generations of ecoboost powerplants. Their emissions systems are different. Although you may be able to swap, and it'll run, it may not shift gears or maintain a steady idle as the electronic throttle is tuned to the emissions system. In other words, you would need the ECM and its harness.

Torque settingsfor head on lister petter mini6 engine


I have just rebuilt one for our Westerly 21. This is from my Petter 'A' range workshop manual:-
The water cooled engines (AC1W etc.) are:cylinder head nuts: 30NM (22 lbft) except 32.5NM (24 lbft) for the one that also holds the rocker.
Valve clearances are 0.1mm (0.004") COLDReset valve clearance after one hours running since torquing the head.
Retorque head and set valve clearance after initial 20 hours running
I believe Mini-6 refers to the water cooled engines but just in case, the air cooled engines are 27N (20 lbft)

How much could I expect to pay for a new 4.0L engine? I just got my 94 Jeep grand cherokee laredo for $200, so putting an engine in it will still be a great deal, I think.


that depends on what part of the country you live in. here in nys, a 4.0 will cost approx. at a junk yard ) low miles. about 3 to 4 hundred.

I have 1999 galand and have a tack tack soun i think is the lister


i had this same problem, its a loud tapping sound coming from the engine and sounds louder when you rev. i had the car for over 1 year working like this until i found a solution that cuts the noise significantly (over 50%) and also giving the car more power. it also helps wjth the over-idling when you start the car when it is cold. firstly disconnect the battery then you have to remove the air intake hose. this will expose the throttle body. there is a sensor attached to it, i believe that is the throttle body sensor.this sensor need to be removed and cleaned using a little wd-40 and then put back in place. make sure that your air filter is clean and mount back the intake.
