Hello, I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
As far as I am concerned, the engine should be purring like a kitten as everything has been totally re-built and renewed in accordance with the technical spec from a Chrysler workshop manual (garage version) . The engine is running and all seems fine apart from the tappety (heavy) sound coming generally from the area of pistons 1&2.
As I said before, there appears to be some sort of oil starvation in the rocker area. Just ordered an oil gauge; as soon as it arrives, I will be able to check the pressure properly but the oil light is staying out and known to be working properly. Martyn Lawrence
