That would be my guess as well. Hence my suggestion.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Adjustable or non adjustable rockers?

If non adjustable, i'd lean towards a bent push rod.

You gotta locate it to fix it tho right....

someone mentioned the screw driver trick...its old hat and rather awkward.

Personally, I use a length of hose as a stethoscope... some 5/16th fuel hose works perfect. One end in the ear, the other chasing the noise.

I'd start with this to get an accurate location for the noise, will stop a lot of guessing and give you a solid start point tracking it down.

Common mistake is people forget some of the early cars were adjustable and hence they screw them right down (as you do for non-adjustable) causing all sorts of issues.

Glad you found it. On non-pressed setup - often there are two on each side so they don't move (and possibly come loose).

But if it's fully floating rod ie has circlips, not an interference fit gudgeon pin,

Nice looking car.
I agree with Shaun as a sleeve will get you going faster.
All depends on your goals though.
