taaron Posted February 25, 2020 Author Share Posted February 25, 2020 Its bad lighting. Compression is solid on the engine, and I had just replaced the oil right before this. The knocking was the cam lobe hitting the rocker arm that had jumped off the lash pad. There was a second one that was also starting to fall. I got it back on, set cold clearances (was tired and not up for hot). Also ran a can of BG EPR through the engine (I personally like this stuff), and switched over to some Royal Purple (I've run it in all my other cars). Replaced plugs with clean unfouled ones. Car ran like it did before, beautifully. Idled at the right RPM, no knocking. So hopefully this weekend I can get back into the tuning side.
