I recently just completed a head change..Trick flow heads, TF roller rockers and TF Hardened pushrods..Problem or should I say question is..

I have adjusted the drivers side rockers 3 times already (Zero+ 1/4 turn Hydraulic cam Lunati [email protected] and 515 lift)...And even though I can't here anything while standing next to the engine while running..I do here a very faint click coming from the drivers side valve cover using my stesescope(SP????)..Could it have something to do with the headers being cut down and rewelded with a close bend(Clearance issues) on the driverside..There are NO header leaks on the drivers side....(I do have a collector leak on the passenger side)).....Thanks again

Zero lash + 1/4 turn is on the loose side IMO especially if it is a new cam and you have new rocker arms. The rocker bearings will loosen a little with breakin and so will the cam and lifters. I always set them to zero lash plus 1/2 turn. Maybe you have one that is a touch on the loose side.

Keep in mind that roller rockers are a little noisey when working properly - I'm assuming that since you only hear it on one side that you MIGHT have one that a little loose. Probably nothing to worry about at all.

I have trick flow heads with roller rockers, every time I get on it hard, the valve train is a little noisy. I have adjusted the valves 3 times, and i still here the ticking noise sometimes. I think that it is just normal.
