Re: engine noise in #7 cylinder - 302 V8
I would try the easy remedy 1st. That being the header leak or crack before I go diving into the motor. I'm not saying anyone is wrong. All I'm saying, you may get lucky and it be a bad gasket or a cracked header and you won't even have to go into the motor. I know when I had a bad header gasket, it sounded like valve tapping.
