    It is probably just coincidental thermal ticking of the exhaust system. Air conditioner condensate water dripping onto a hot exhaust system also often makes a sound that resembles a “tick”

    Interesting!

    It might be... i guess the tranny moves around a bit when its in gear versus p and n. Maybe something is moving and contacting an exhaust member.

    The gear lever does act like a light switch for the noise. P or N goes goes away. Anything else, the noise is there. Instantly.

    Here is an attempt to capture the tick tick tick. I got from drive, to neutral, and then back to drive.

    Apologies for the lack of landscape. I took advantage of a drive through window wait!

    Iíve listened 4 times and donít hear anything abnormal. Maybe listening live is different but the drivethru just magnifies every sound. Your car is not an electric Tesla, itís a machine with machine sounds.

    My solution, Get your burger and drink, roll up the windows and drive away. Next time park the car walk inside and place
    your order. Problem Solved.

    Re: OWNER - a777fan (E420)

    Jon, in your video I *think* I can hear what sounds like a normal bottom-end engine noise, that I've heard on some of my M119's. It's a very rythmic tapping sound that will vary with engine RPM. Not sure if this is what you are referring to, but if so, it's nothing to worry about. I've had oil analyses done on most all my M119's and never had anything of concern in the report.

    If it's a different noise, then I'm not hearing it in the video.

    Thanks dave! The more I listen to it, I think your right.

    The fact that I can hear it in gear is due to the fact that its louder at the lower gear engaged engine idle speed.

    Thanks for all the diagnoses! I will once again be able to sleep at night. :P

    OWNER - a777fan (E420)

    Got the monos mounted up today, and I am loving it.







    The shorter sidewall really adds to the steering feel. Turn in is much more crisp. The overall ride harshness isnít that different either. Iím really diggin it.

    The PS4s are slightly noisier than the primacyís but thats to be expected.

    Also, I didnít realize the 8 holes were Ronalís!

    I'd like to hear a little better rendering, but it isn't frightening me too badly. Forgive me for not re-reading your entire restoration thread, but I'm assuming that since you've done so much, your oil tubes are A-OK?

    Sure did Klink! They were replaced with metal ones and new o-rings.

    I love the Michelins --- they are correct!

    On balance though, I have found Michelins seem to get brown much faster than Bridgestones. I don't know why this is. I have Michelins Pilot Super Sports and Bridgestone Potenza S04s side by side on two cars in the garage. The Bridgies start to need tire dressing after 1000 miles or so. The Michelins seem to cry out for dressing about 350 or so miles. Dunno why this is. (This is all dry weather driving - no precipitation)

    More cleaning tonight.

    Iím in love with this dodo juice cleaner. I found their conditioner on ebay. Its coming from lithuania. Odd but that was the only place i could find it.

    Some backseat action:

    25 cents, a paper clip, and a mangled piece of gum were the spoils trapped under the seat.
