Lifter noise fixed?
About a week ago i removed my valve lifter tappets to try to clean them and check for proper operation, what i did after remove tappets i drained the oil from tappets then placed them in a small bucket with about a quart of mineral spirits solvent, this you can find in your local hardware store or walmart, then i just left them soak overnight, then next day i just check the operation of each tappet by pushing the ball part in and releasing it to see if will push back by it self.
After this check i found 3 of them that are getting stock and to hard to release, i have another C27A1 engine and i just removed 3 good tappets from it, then after cleaning, checking and drying the tappets i went and bleed and recharged with new oil (recharge by manual instructions), then just put back together and just the lifter noise went away...
This was a week ago and still no noise and has not comeback at all, this work for me i don't if it will do the same for your engine...

I tell you, its worth almost any effort to get rid of that incessant ticking!! I had forgotten how nice it was to have a non-ticking engine, until I started up the JDM swap-out in my 89L sedan. It's a non-ticker ...and it sounds SWEET!

that "may" help the ticking, it would NEVER stop it, youd have to clean the camshafts too, nothing will ever help the legend "tick", unless you change your oil every 3000km, since new, its not just the lifters that tick, its almost a sludge that builds up on the cam and lifters, then the oil cannot penetrate the parts it needs to, think what you will, the tick can never be "fixed"
