    Loud Clicking when turning

    Hello everyone!

    Have an 04 RXP engine that dropped a valve. Pulled everything, bearings and bottom end are perfect shape, just gotta change one piston. When I reinstall the head(I did not take off rockers), and time it according to manual(two pins and the two lines parallel), when I turn the motor over by hand I'm hearing a LOUD click, almost like a piston is hitting a valve - but its not. It sounds like its coming from the rocker arms. What could be causing the loud clicks? I'll see if I can get a video up.

    Thanks

    Timing chain tensioner not pumped full of oil yet? Cam/timing gear bolts tight?

    Can you really replace a valve without removing the rocker arm?

    I think he has just swapped out the head for a used one with all valves and rockers in place.
