Some members have had success cleaning their engines out with seafoam and freeing a sticky lifter. Use the seafoam in the crankcase for 150 miles and change your oil. It will at least clean your motor up if nothing else. I tried that with mine, then even had a mechanic replace a valve and lifters, but unfortunately, my noise is from the crank somewhere. After all that work, he says I need a different motor. I still have the noise, but plan on running her til she croaks. Other than sounding like a diesel over 3000rpm, she runs good. I've even red lined her in 1st n 2nd to see if the motor would blow but she's still together.
