[TR] Fwd: Valve noise?

My escort made a horrendous noise when it happened.  I guess you can pull the plugs and the rockershaft assembly and rotate the engine and see if the noise is still there.  Pulling the head may be the next step.

Yes, new seats.  I was thinking one got loose too.

Did you have hardened valve seats installed?  If so one possibility is the seat came loose.  I had that happen on a Ford Escort (aluminum head).

>From the right rear of the cylinder head, I am getting a loud clatter.  Not like rocker arm tapping on valve, much louder. Goes with rpm's.  Whatcha think?  Please respond to me directly, too, I am on digest, would like to know without the wait.  Thanx in advance.
