Nah, hasn't had them or jet valves since I got the car. On another note, the person who rebuilt my motor told me it might be the chain tensioner. What are you guys' opinions on that?

So, the oil pressure should be much higher than stock. So, that should eliminate the normal lifter chatter, as well as it is also going be some extra cushion for the bearings.... so what is left?

If you have “heard” or “read” about the chain tensioner, but you haven’t checked it yet.... what do you think then next sensible thing to check is?

Its also important to understand.... the fan circuit is a ground relay circuit. It always has power to the fans and the temp switches in the bottom of the radiator complete the (ground side) circuit via 2 relays on the passenger side by the air box. If you look in the coolant system section, I believe there is a write up on using a jumper wire between the 2 relays to kick on both fans when either is switched by the sensor. I have mine wired this way just in case one temp switch fails, then the other will trigger both fans. To test your fans, just jump the wires connected to the temp switches to a good ground source. If they don’t come on, then either the fan or the + power source to it is the problem.
