05 Rancher ES 4x4, The other weekend we were on a ride and my engine started ticking. I have been ragged about whether I have gotten my clock fixed. I promptly took it to the truck and just got a chance to fool with it. Adjusted the valves .006 knock is quieter but still there. It seems to be worse when the valve cover is on. I have checked the cover to make sure that it was bent. I found that I got some moisture in the engine because the side vent tube on the R/H side had come loose and let some water in. The oil seems to have more fuel than water. I have not changed the oil yet waiting to ge the tick out. Any ideas

water got in my engine through the output shaft seal and it started ticking needless to say $1,300.00 later it was fixed(rebuild).

I am wondering my chances of this being covered under warranty. I have changed the oil will have to change it a few more times to get the erst of the water out. Also can anyone direct me on finding tdc of the piston to readjust the valves.

There is a litlle allen head cap that you need to open, that way you can see the "t" spot that let's you know that the engine is top dead center but I have done it so many times that I skip that step lol.

Yeah I found on the how to section how to this but thanks. I got everything back together changed the oil went to run it and my sparkplug decided it wanted to run in sideways so I just quit until I can run a thread chaser in it. Hopefully it will crank up and purr.

Ok maybe Im being a little uptight here but I have yet to have any luck. I am wondering inside the hole that you see the T at what point should the T be. There is an arrow and on the side of the casing should that line up center of the T or the line below or does it matter. I am trying one last time and then it is to the Honda shop

As long as you can see the it shouldn't be a big deal. I never bothered to center the T mark on the arrow. It gets annoying after a while.

Update my rancher has been at the shop since first week of Oct. Seems some sand had gotten in the engine and the bottom end is pretty shot the reason it is taking so long is that they are trying to get it waranteed. I didnt give this much thought but with the sand it may not be covered. The crank vent hose may have been letting some sand in. I knew they would kick back if you took it in extreme mud but now I guess I should avoid dusty areas. If I ever get it back I think I am going to put street tires on it.
