i think i posted this once already but i cant find where i put it


new small block chevy
about 300 miles on it

comp cam with hydralic lifters
weird ticking noise is made when it heats up (louder than normal)

i have replaced the rocker arms and studs...lifters once...and push rods twice

so any idea or help on what it can be?

any help would be greatly appreciated

Why not swing the car by your local machine shop? (engine) Having an expert diagnose the noise is going to be quicker and cheaper than having people guess at it on the internet. If you've already replaced a bunch of parts with no success it may be something different, an incorrect adjustment, or just the nature of the cam you chose.
