[xj] FW: Loose Stake Down?

Jerry Meissner <@Jerry_Meissner1>> My 87 xj6 had the stake down kit installed several years ago, but here

recently I have notice a tapping noise in the morning on the exhaust side
at
start up and it will last for several miles and becomes noticeably quieter
as the engine warms. Could I possibly have a stake down that has gotten
loose or is it something else? Thanks in advance for info, Jerry.

Jerry,
I’d say “yes” it’s possible. Wouldn’t take ten minutes to pull the cam cover
and take a peek ! I have an occasional engine noise on cold mornings and I
believe I’d read in the archives that the cam chain may be a wee bit loose.
Worth looking into, I guess.
