|I appreciate the comments, Ill try to reply best I can.
Valvetrain geometry changed a small amount when I made the changes I made, different heads IE who knows what the differences were as far as surfaces milled too.
Different head gaskets, maybe thicker maybe thinner, I used Fel-pro, prob originals I removed, Id guess Fel pro a thicker gasket.
New push rods IE longer probably since no wear and new rockers, my point is the lifters had to learn a different pattern.
New heavier springs over the worn out crap that was in original heads.
I did run some BG engine stuff in the engine ( like seafoam ) I think it did help but I dont want to risk the chance of damaging things by running to just hope it works.
Truck ran great after the work I did, power, no issues whatsoever except the noise.
Im hoping for the best with the new lifters. Ive got a few service techs with alot of experience hoping for the best as well, the only caution Ive been given at this point is that I need to change cam with lifters cause its whats technically supposed to be done.
Im gonna roll the dice and hope for the best.
Its gonna be a few days at least to get parts again, Ill be sure to update either way
