My 01 426 makes a lot of chain slap noise on the low side of mid-range but not bogged. Mostly in 1st and 2nd. Dont notice it much in third. I am going to pull the valve cover off and check the chain and cams. Every once and a while the kick starter has a funky click to it. Can't explain it. It almost feels like it breaks or skips. It doesn't do this during the kick stroke, but every once in a while when doin the routine to get to TDC. Those are my current issues. Any Ideas?? Thanks again fellas Mike ------------------ 01 426 "sewing machine"
