it is not a ticking. it is more like a loud thud. the noise first surfaced at 75 mph. it sounded like a dead lifter and then got louder. when i got off the freeway and shut down, the noise was still there but not as loud upon restart. the noise only appears after the engine oil hits 200 degrees. there is plenty of vacuum and the needle is steady. there is 50 psi oil pressure at startup then it drops to 30-35 at higher oil temps. i have not had the time to pull the engine yet but that is on the agenda this december. have to get it running for the new year, as it is a driver.
thanks for all the suggestions. i'll keep you posted on what i findciao,
