When you say chain hoist, what do you mean? I ask this because when I heard the valve start tapping, I also thought I heard a spinning sound. The tapping side came from the driver side but the spinning sound appeared to be coming from the passenger side. When I restarted some time later, I only heard the tapping sound and did not hear the spinning sound.

I'm hopefully finding time to open it up tonight so I'll respond back with what I find. As a novice, some times the hardest thing is to understand is if what I'm hearing or what I'm looking at is a problem, a potential problem, or just normal. One thing you can't get from books is experience.
