3.9V8 Damaged Hydraulic lifter failure


Recommended Posts

After 4 months of no use at all I decided to fire up my RRC 3.9V8.

it had not been started or even touched at all in the time it was sitting.

I started it, turned over twice and fired up and ran fine, other than a horrible ticking from the Engine.

I changed the Oil and started it again with a noticeable change in the ticking.

I have striped the top off the engine and found a damaged lifter. as in the bottom being punched up?

Is there any reason this will happen? as the lifters where new 2 years ago.
