how long did you run the engine?? Maybe the lifters where not pumped back up?? pushrod not in the rocker pocket, could be tons of things or nothing at all. New engines started up can make lifter noise for 30-60 seconds. Most times you hear them clatter and then you will hear that noise start to go away and then it is gone. leak it down .. maybe the valve to valve to is close and you rolled it over and it clipped when the lifters where not fully bleed down.
What are some 'good vs 'bad leak down results?
first of all 1st gear is best.
the best method is to remove the compensator and have a strong assistant hold the sprocket shaft in place with a holding/turning tool...
I just got off the phone with a buddy and explained my dilemma. He's convinced that the valves nicked each other rather than the vale kissing the piston. He referenced the risk of putting too high of a cam which will lead to valves nicking rather then hitting the piston.
