ticking noise coming from new engine

just installed a jasper remanufactured engine in my truck it has about 500 miles on it and im starting to hear a tapping noise on the passanger side of the truck sounds like it is coming from the valve cover area. you cant hear it really at idle but from 1500 to 2200 rpms you really hear it. sounds to me like a rocker arm clattering or tapping. not really sure. just looking for some input on this issue.also the injectors and turbos are new also

It sounds a lot like the noise my truck has been making (albeit mostly from the driver's side on mine) for quite some time now.

Oh......I just re-read your post..... I have not had much luck with jasper re-manufacturing in my experience as a mechanic. Call jasper/the installing shop and ask them to look at it.

Did you put it in or dealer.
If dealer take it back.
If you put it in call Jasper.
Not sure if jasper sells direct anymore.

Mine has made that noise since I bought it.
TSB
09-16-2 6.4L DIESEL ENGINE TICKING/TAPPING NOISE

Publication Date: August 3, 2009

FORD: 2008-2010 F-Super Duty


This article supersedes TSB 08-19-5 to update the vehicle model years.

ISSUE:
Some 2008-2010 F-Super Duty 250-550 vehicles equipped with a 6.4L diesel engine may exhibit a random engine ticking / tapping noise that is most noticeable when engine coolant temperature is 185 F (85 C) or higher and from base idle to approximately 1500 RPM. Some customers may complain that this noise becomes more evident after 3000-5000 miles have accumulated on the vehicle or after an engine oil change.

ACTION:
Refer to the Service Procedure for repair recommendations.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

The ticking / tapping noise is most noticeable at the rear of the driver's side front wheel well. 6.4L Powerstroke diesel engines exhibit this normal audible condition (some engines will exhibit greater audible noise due to engine build variations). 6.4L Powerstroke diesel engines are manufactured to tight tolerances in order to meet strict durability and reliability standards.

This noise is caused by the relationship between engine block, crankshaft journals, bearing inserts and oil viscosity / film. This relationship allows a pulsation that resonates through the cylinder block and is heard as a metallic ticking noise. This condition is present on all diesel engines.

Technological improvements and overall noise reduction in today's diesel engines make this issue seem new when in fact it was masked by other noises on previous engines. Other engine manufacturers report similar conditions in their diesel engines. Vehicle testing and engine teardown analysis have confirmed this condition will not effect reliability or long term durability of this engine. Dealers should not attempt to perform vehicle to vehicle noise comparisons. This may lead to incorrect conclusions and ineffective repairs.

NOTE: DO NOT ATTEMPT REPAIRS FOR THIS NORMAL NOISE CONDITION. REPLACING THE ENGINE OR INTERNAL COMPONENTS WILL NOT REDUCE OR ELIMINATE THE TICKING/TAPPING NOISE. PLEASE PROVIDE THIS BULLETIN TO CUSTOMERS THAT INQUIRE ABOUT THIS CONDITION.




WARRANTY STATUS:

Contact a Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury dealership to determine whether the Bulletin applies to your vehicle. Warranty Policy and Extended Service Plan documentation determine Warranty and/or Extended Service Plan coverage unless stated otherwise in the TSB article.
