Re: Tick in engine
I put a targetmaster 350 in my 68 back in 93 and all the while that I had it running before I took it apart(which is now) it had a tick in it too. It was coming from the fuel pump area, I just figured it was how the engine sounded and since it was a target master engine, I just ignored it. I have never had a problem with it. I am going to put it back into the car for a while till I can afford a kick butt engine to put into it, and if it still ticks then I'm just going to ignore it, besides the tick isn't very loud and the only time you can really hear it is with the hood open and even then you have to tune the sound into your hearing to notice it. Most mechanics I talked to said that it isn't anything to worry about, so I say don't worry about it.
PS- it is a known fact that 90% of things people worry about-never happen........................007
