Can't get rid of that darn ticking noise and you've already adjusted your valves twice?? It looks like your lost motion assembly(s) are worn out buddy. Inline Four now offers the **NEW & IMPROVED** lost motion assembly from Honda. In the beginning, Honda used to equip all B-series and H-series VTEC with a hydraulic fliud based lost motion assembly. Over time, especially with the use of high-lift camshafts, these wore out and lost their tension. To remedy this problem, Honda released a "spring type" lost motion that also features a larger "footprint" or "pad". This spring type lost motion does not fatigue as easy as the old fluid type and can be used with all types of aftermarket camshafts.
SOLD IN A COMPLETE SET OF 8 LOST MOTIONS
