I heard some serious ticking coming from the valve cover so I took it off and took a look Ihad a busted rocker arm, so I replaced it and put everything back together minus the VC and started er up, still ticking pretty bad. Could this be the valve spring retainers gone bad? I heard when they go bad they could tick pretty loudly. Any help would be great, thanks

you might also have trapped air in there, our engines are notorious for making valve/rocker ticking if air is trapped there

download the FSM they tell you how to do it there... I think it involves, taking the valve assembly off and immersing it in oil... although you might have a roller rocker engine, which then I wouldn't know if the procedure would be the same..

Guess you know what Im thinking of.....//\\

dang it never mind I was reading the FSM and then I saw that the oil immersion is for the valve guide replacement. ... I remember seeing something on here about trapped air making that noise numerous times... Just waif for p10det to give you a hand, he's a nissan Tech.

Ok update, the ticking is gone it turned out to be something simple the "shims" with the grove that the rocker arm sits on top of, wasnt there I found it in the engine. BUT the problem now is the idle is all sorts of F'ed up, I marked where the distributor was and all, and while I was at it I changed the distributor rotor as well, but I dont see why this would F it up like so, It revs to about 2-3K and then back down to like 800-900 and sort of hisses, any ideas?
