Re: Lifters seem to bleed down overnight? Clackin in the morning, everytime?
If the lifters do not have a lot of miles on them i would bet a few are out of adj which is usually the case when the lifters quiet down 30 seconds after startup.
Just re-adjust them 1/4-1/2 turn down from zero lashs either adjsuting them using the static method or doing it with the motor running at low idle (motor warmed up)and you should be fine. Use rocker arm clips or Al foil to stop the oil if doing valve adj with motor running. Also only adj 1 side at a time to reduce oil mess.
