yeah your lifters are f**k, so a thicker oil conceals the noise a bit.

HLA - Hydraulic Lash Adjuster. Commonly referred to as lifters. And yes, going to a slightly thicker oil *should* help you out. I went from 20w-60 down to -50 with no problems, good oil pressure, but i think -40 would have stretched it

im usinga 15w-60 atm.. 1 HLA taps for a few minutes on a cold startups since putting a cam in. doesnt really bother me, goes away once oil gets up there.

next oil change im going down to a 15w-40. hopefully get the oil to the head and silence it abit quicker
