i finally worked out most of the problems on my newly rebuilt motor. but now i have two that im worried about, the first is a tap the second is gaskets. i bought a first gen obd0 head and slapped it on a obd2 block. the head supposedly had some new valves put in and it was milled. well i have this decently louder than normal tap coming from the head, so i put in skunk2 springs thinking the springs were weak nothing changed. i could almost desrcibe the noise as diesel motor sound so weird. i did a little research and i found other people having the same problem and thinking its the lma? sound right? the noise is loud at idle but quiets out a llittle when the motor revs. any thoughts? second my motor seems to be seeping a lil bit of oil from the front corner by transaxle between block and head not alot. do gaskets need time to seat and is this normal or should i be worried? thanx.
