Default 2.2.valve tap...

Hello,
I posted last week about the 2.2 valve tap. You guys replied about pulling the lash adjusters out and refilling them. I did this, It WORKED! kinda... It is defintely better than it was, however, the tapping still is there. Not near as bad, and it comes and goes, but still there. Is there any chance that the small "O" rings around the lash at fault, letting oil past them?
Thanks,
Jamie

Just make sure you are using the right type/viscosity oil and changing it regularly. Also, keep the oil level full.

Just changed it using 10 W 40 which I have used in every sub I have owned except the 88 Turbo. (which totals 11 so far.)

If changing the HLA worked for you, that's great.

Did you verify your old adjustor was bad?


I had the same problem and this worked only for a few miles. I'd suggest substituting a quart of Rislone at your next oil change. You could also spend a little more money and buy AutoRX. (I happen to be on my 2nd AutoRX flush cycle right now, and have not had any tapping whatsoever for a few thousand miles now.)

Good luck.

What is the actual PART number for the HLA O-rings??

I've been searching everywhere and can't find anything except for everybody and their grandmother casually saying "replace the O-rings with new ones" but not once have I seen anybody post a part number or a link so I can actually buy them.

Very frustrated right now Anybody know the part number for the HLA O-rings so I don't have to buy new HLAs?

This is a WAY old thread. I never posted what fixed my problem. When I pulled the rocker shafts off, there was a small aluminum shaving blocking the oil port which fills the rockers thus starving the lash adjusters for oil. Cleaned this out, refilled the lash adjusters and reassembled. Worked great for a LONG time. Then it happened again, SAME problem. I repeated the above procedure and have never looked back. Problem solved. that was 100,000 miles ago.

Good find^^^

Those small oil galleys do like to get plugged up rather easily.

Car_boy, go to a local Subaru dealer or call one up. They should be easily able to tell you the part numbers for the HLA o-rings.

Haha Jamie, well then I guess it was good I posted in your old thread -- now we have even more helpful information. I will be removing my rocker assembly to check my ports closer.

Thanks Jesse, I will call them and see if they have the O-rings, and I will -- for what may be the only part # posting of them on here -- post the numbers in this thread if I get them.

Cheers, guys.

I had bad lifter tick in my old legacy. I checked all my HLAs and nothing. Turns out my oil pump was bad. The engine wasn't getting the proper oil pressure and the oil was getting air bubbles in it not allowing the HLAs to stay full.
