If it looks like a duck...


Recommended Posts

I removed a post today that some of you might have seen...about a ticky valve. After I read up on reasons for one, I deleted my post...there are too many of them! I heard the tick but went for a cruise yesterday, heard some other noise  a 1/2 hour later so straight home I went and parked. I started the engine tonight and listened. That's coming more from the front. I feel dumb but a happy dumb! To me it had a steady noise so....and that weird sound at a red light? Probably a chunk of rubber! I also kick myself in the ass for not replacing something as simple as the belt when I was working on it. Grrr.....

Dont beat yourself up.... We all over react sometimes... Knowledge comes from experience.. and we all can learn from each others experiences, good or bad.. At least thats why I read the posts.... Glad to hear its nothing serious.... Get 2 belts, one for a spare.... I know I will be carrying a spare....     John

Thanks John and good idea! We sized up a new belt today and I threw it on. Engine even sounds better. I had this weird kinda squeaky/squishy sound beginning of the summer that I attributed to the internal parts. Guess it was the belt all along...
