Rocker arm replacement
In previous valve guide posts, some of you mentioned that worn rocker arm assemblies could be the possible culprit to the ticking/tapping noise that is usually associated with worn valve guides.
My rig has this distinct and typical high milage 7.3l ticking noise that is getting worse and I always thought it was valve guides on there way out. However, since there is no noticeable 'chuffing'' sound out the exhaust or intake like there would be with bad guides, could my issue be worn rocker arms?
Im assuming rocker replacement on our idi's is similar to that of any other V-8, or am I mistaken?
