Yea, I've stuck with HPR30 for about 5 changes now. Serves me right lol.... :lol:


Those HPR oils are really thick arn't they? Ford recomend 15W-40, and I though HPR15 was 15W-60 and HPR30 20W-60! Why do you run such thick oil? I mean my motors got 640,000km's and she still loves the Penzoil Gas - which is a 15W-40 oil for duel fuel cars. There's about 2 seconds of ticking on start up in the early morning, onyl when i park on the street (instead of the garage) and Tasie's like Australia's coldest place!

EDIT; i got bored and went to the Penrite website and they recomend you run HPR15... Queer stuff.


HPR15 is recommened where 15-40 to 20-50 is specified. Reason I was running thicker oil anyway is because my rings are a bit shagged and if I run too thin it uses too much oil.

I bet the lifter doing it is the 'non-genuine' repco one anyway. The rest of them are original ford ones - I accidently ran over one of my lifters with a car when doing the cam install lol - needless to say it needed replacing.
.

PMSL

How'd ya run over a lifter with doing your cam change? .. can not running when ya doing a cam change!?

Start saving for a motor dude ;)

Oh I dropped the lifter under the car and couldn't see it under there, so we pushed the car backwards a bit to get some more light and there it was right where the front left tyre had been lol...

Drop the oil and try something else, we found with our old EL different oils made a difference. s**t I can't even think what oil we used. I'll have a think and will be back.


Since thought about it...we started using penrite but the ticking was terrible then swapped to mobil 1 fully synthetic and didn't hear another tick or knock!

Around 140000k's. The only reason we changed to that was because we took it in for a service and supplyed them with the penrite but when we got it back it was knocking and ticking more than when we put it in. So after complaining about it the guy offered to drop the oil and put the mobil 1 in that he used for his race car...what a major difference, it does cost a fair bit but well worth it - the car run rather sweet after that.

Funny thing is with my Lifter/Lash adjuster noise problem is it stops and is dead quite just after about 10 seconds of idling early in the morning. Then I go for a drive and then I hear it after I stop and then I put it in to "Park". It isn't as noisy in "Drive" either :?: :?:

I'm currently running HPR30 and it just ticks for a bit on start and goes away. The next change i might run HPR15 because of the cold winter temps.

BTW the cars done 295,XXX kms.

Well I hope what happened to me doesn't happen to you.
Funny thing is with the HPR30 the tick that went away after 10 seconds or so wasa really loud one - well that's completely gone now. The tick that I get now is much quieter but does not go away at all.

:oops: OMG, it wasn't a lifter at all. Infact the all the lifters are 100% tick free even from cold now.

Don't know why it popped up after an oil change but it was something to do with the clutch/gearbox.
As soon as I put in the clutch it went away 8-)

Looks like the clutch fork is vibrating on the bellhousing slightly or something...
