    Asking for a friend (yes for real). Replaced the lifters due to ticking and now there’s a clacking sound. No noticeable vibrations. Any ideas? Doesn’t sound like lower end.

    Did you get all the rocker arms snapped back in properly? That would be my first check

    I asked that right away, he says they are all properly in place and fit fine.

    First why did you have to replace the lifters? just ticking sound, nothing more ?
    second, was there any noise at all before hand ?
    How many miles on motor?

    He replaced them due to ticking. There was no other noise. I’m unsure of miles but can check.
