Valve Noise
« on: August 06, 2021, 01:05:33 PM »
I have a '67 B. I know the engine valves can be a little noisy. These are normal quirks of the car but they now seem a little louder that usual. The car sat for about a year and a half before I acquired it (garage kept). Since April, I have put about 1200 miles on it. And with some of the hot days, it has been at the upper end of running temps. Would it be a good idea to go back and check the clearances and or do an oil change (thinking early oil breakdown as well since it sat)?

The '79 and '80 are nearly 100% parts exchangeable. Some minor wiring harness differences only.
