I have met Joe already. He's been great. He saved me quite a bit when I replaced the oil lines. (one of the P.O.'s apparently owned a floor jack). I haven't tried bringing my tools, but he did let me wander around in the warehouse a bit. It's good to know that I can scavenge small parts myself and give him cash when I find them. I feel a little guilty pulling him away from an engine sale for a trim ring. Nice to meet you!
The update so far is that there is some "valve-like" noise at some RPMs (around 1500 to 2300) but at idle I just hear a little piston slap or maybe chain noise) I don't want to take it open again for nothing so I am driving it a little and listening. I guess I will eventually stop suspecting sounds I hear, but it's hard not to worry. It's been a long time since my last 911 and I don't have a good ear for normal any more.
