can injectors make a loose lifter sound?
I notice my tail pipe bent almost in half tonite. So I cut that part off. Then I said the muffler is outta here. I have a 4 inch ss straight thru performance muffler. I put that on in its place cause I had the adapter to make it fit. At this point i have no tail pipe on the truck.
I noticed a ticking lifter sound out the exhaust once started. Its the same sound in repitition with the sound from the front of the truck. My wifes has the same ticking type sound but not out the back, but she has a cat andd a stockmuffler. I am sure that would muffle anything. I know what the diesel noise is but this is like a loose lifter. But my other one does it too. I have a long lead ae injector in number 8 on my truck. It runs well.
Can the injector make this sort of lifter noise?
How would it come thru the exhaust like this? Do your guys do it too?
