No roller rockers, stock rockers. I did the screwdriver to the ear trick and didn't hear anything other than the solid lifters going tick, tick, tick. The sound is coming from the center of the engine behind the water pump. I thought it was the pump, but we removed the belt and still had it.
I'm thinking cam and fuel pump rod. ????

I was in the process of building my engine sling, and ran out of welding wire. So now its a trip to the industrial store this morning for more .030 wire.
Picture to follow.
