Ticks a bit when driving it! WIll keep gojng for years with TLC. Ticking unidentified by specialist garage - not causing problems as far as we can tell. Ticks all the time - as far as i recall. Been doing it for so long, not sure if i noticed if it stopped.

:? Usual sources of 'Ticking' :?

1 - Accumulator Sphere: If this was really a specialist garage it should have been identified immediately so maybe this is not the source of problem.

2 - Speedo Head: More of a constant tick which changes frequency with speed. May need to be replaced but improvement is possible by the application of 3in1 oil (sparingly) to the primary input parts/gears when unit is removed fom the binnacle.

3 - Rattling of coins in the coin holder. :wink:

He's forgot to mention the small detail; that he has already had it diagnosed as a piston ring and that was after it was written off!

If that's a broken piston ring then cylinder bore is likely damaged along with piston. In any event a major strip & refurb of the engine is indicated.

'Barge Poles' are coming to mind here! :roll:
