Hi bluebox,

The fuel injectors make a ticking sound also. That's most likely all it is. It's normal.
The b230f engines make a slight ticking sound by design. Don't know why exactly. It has been explained on several forums in past posts.

Hope this helps, Best of success.

Really but I'm sure it's something else if this were a hydraulic lifter set up I would say the lifters are bad?

My lifters are set to spec and they still tick at times.... not a concern.

There is an easy way to check for injector noise if you don't have a stethescope, use a piece of wood ( whatever), up against your ear and each injector, it will be obvious.

It's the valve hushers causing the noise,over time they collapse.They fit between the valve stem tip and the cam follower bucket.Wont hurt anything,just makes for a noisy engine.

Can you tell me where they are in the Bentley or Haynes manuals? I took a look at the valve train sections a month ago, and couldn't figure out what people meant by valve husher, but I will go back armed with your gif.

I have a 1989 240GL wagon with the B230F engine (well, that's what I think it should have, anyways_.

The hushers are set on ( around) the top of the valve stems. The cam buckets sit on top of the valves, and the cam lobes push down on them when it rotates. You can't see the top of the valves or the valve springs for that matter as the buckets cover them. If you wanted to replace the hushers you would need to remove the cam, and buckets.

You can see the top of the valve stem in this pic, the husher slips over the tip. ( You can see the bucket that belongs to that valve yet to be installed)

Thanks for clearing that up.

I suspect I will leave them alone unless I need to adjust my valves.

would have thought keeping a good quality oil and regular changes would help this also, as i had the same noise on my turbo head ... changed the oil and the noise went away for 20k

just my humble input there (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Well the ticking just got a whole lot louder I understand the wierd injector noise but I had a 87 740 with over 350km on it and it never sounded this bad so it's off for some new "hushers" is this a simple job ? driving this loud 240 is just too embarrasing I gotta fix this (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blush.gif)
