After my roller tappet installation of last year followed by complete engine removal and disassembly, I am a bit paranoid that something might be wrong. She was running TOO perfectly, until...

Argh! Do I hear a loud TAP TAP TAP noise from the valve cover area? Oh no, my tappets! This could be horrible!

(Remove earplugs and helmet) oh, wait that’s not a TAP TAP TAP, it’s more like a CHUF CHUFF CHUFF

(Check exhaust manifold) oops, the nut worked its way clean off! That explains it.

(Replace nut) Argh it’s still making the noise! There is another leak! This could be horrible!

(Check again) oops the OTHER nut is loose too.

(Torque exhaust manifold nuts properly) Aaaahhhh, she is perfect again. Relax, relax. Ride!
