Beyond the Grambo Trick?
I did the Grambo trick the other day. It seems to have cleared up most of the ticking I was hearing, but not all. I turned the inner screw clockwise and let it snap back numerous times. I also applied torque counterclockwise with my fingers using a small screwdriver numerous times, but was careful to not over do it. The ACCT's seemed nice and free and spun back easily. The ticking is gone from the front cylinder, but not the back. It seems worse when the engine is hot. I did the adjustment on a cold engine.
I was thinking of getting a short piece of 1/8 - 3/16 alum. or brass rod, inserting it into the hole where the ACCT goes, and giving it a few light taps with a pair of pliers or light hammer. Whatever fits in the area. The purpose would be to free up whatever the ACCT pushes on a little more aggressively. But, not knowing exactly what is in there, I thought I'd ask first. I'm just looking to do everything I can before I have to go to MCCT's. Ain't got the $$$ for those yet...
Is there something I can do beyond what I've done to improve this issue?
If it wasn't for time, everything would happen at once!!
