Are the lifters on a 1962, 289 4bbl Hawk solids? I have a ticking in the top end that sounds like it is the tappets but not all of them. I need to figure out how to deal with it.
Thanks,
JOhn

All Studebaker engines are solids John. When they're set correctly you should not hear them. Unfortunately, there's many, many different shade-tree shortcuts used to setting them, I suggest that you set them by the book, (hot).
