Hi,
A ticking noise started about a week ago in the engine. I have taken a video of the it in the link below to give you a better idea of what it sounds like.

YouTube - Ticking noise in fj40 2f engine ???

Any idea on what could be the problem ?

We also noticed that there is no oil splashing out the valves . What could be causing all that ? We removed the oil pan and checked if the oil pump which seems to be clean, the oil pressure is high on the gauge in the dash.

we also changed the stock headers and the exhaust to give you some back ground as i read in other posts that is could be an exhaust leak.

any help would be appreciated.

can i drive the truck around or should i fix the problem first ?

thanks in advance

My personal experience with a 76 2F is that it make an oily mess in a hurry without the valve cover on. You may want to determine why you don't seem to have much oil at the rockers.
