      lately ive been hearing a constant click from what seems to be my chains side of the motor. tensioners and chains were said to be done around 123k. After ive been driving it for a few minutes i hear the click. i thought it was the trans/ throwout berring but when i push the clutch in and have it in gear i can still hear the click. it is not rapid like a tensioner like a tick tick tick, its like tick......tick......tick, could this be my top end of my block not receiving enough oil? i have a cracked oil pan, doesnt leak that often but i feel as if that is the source of the problem. Also i feel as if i lose power once i hit about 4300-4400 RPMs could that be because of low oil pressure? any ideas are appreciated

      Put a gauge on the engine and check your oil pressure

      Could possibly be your shifter rod bushings. Not sure how there done in the 24v but I know I had the same issue on my 12v and I ended up having to buy a new intake manifold because even the gruven bushings wouldn't solve it.
