Re: Onomatopoeias - was: Source for lifters/valves?

Nah, "sick 50", etc. won't help as they just provide a "film". What you
need to quiet the lifters is *pressure*. Lubricant under pressure expands
the lifters and eliminates the play that results in the ticking. The faster
you pressureize the lifters, the faster the noise goes away. This is why
synthetics are the way to go. Or try water? :) No, don't try water.....
