Like all good first run movies, there's a sequel. I drove the car 50-100 miles last night and today. The ticking is gradually getting worse again. I got out the automotive stethoscope and isolated it to exhaust side near number 2. This means that number 2 changed after I adjusted it and re-checked it. Is this the point where I start replacing the foot and/or the pivot shaft? I'll have to take it apart again to recheck the adjustment, but the odds of a mistake in adjustment hitting 1 out of 12 twice in a row are pretty long odds.
Any suggestions on what I should take apart to insure I find the problem here? It still runs fine, and I have played in the boost, so I hesitate to call it "carbon on the valve seat".
