  • Noisy Lifters

    Our '77 Cordoba with 400 motor has been sitting for about 5 years. We fired it up yesterday and the lifters at the front of the motor on both sides are noisy. We changed the oil and that didn't make a bit of difference. Thinking of swapping in new lifters but not sure if that will solve the problem, any other ideas would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

    How long did you run the engine?
    If you gave it 10 minutes or better at idle and they didn't get better, I'd change them. If you didn't give ten minutes to see if they pump up, try that.

        I have used Marvel's Mystery Oil for free up noisy lifters and other things stuck from setting.

          Took long enough but we finally replaced lifters and push rods and the 400 is running nice and quiet again.
