Default Re: Noise in my new 29 a engin

I had one of those, after rebuilding everything sounded great but after 1000 miles it started to overheat going through the mountains then that little noise started , it seemed to go away under slight power and was most noticeable under no power or float. I changed a lot of stuff but never really found the source, I was left with the belief that it was the cam gear, had the engine apart and could see that the tops of a couple pistons had hit the gasket but after getting it back together the noise was still there, however the noise only started after the engine ran a mile or so so I left well enough alone and it never got any worse.
