Hi Folks,


Well the Sidecar is back. Same one month turn-around but I don't have a tappet noise. I have only about 50km on the rig so I won't chip it in stone yet. Adam the service manager at BMW Cleveland, Ohio said he put in new push-rods on the right side.

Here is hoping.

Thanks everyone for you insight. I hope that is the end of my engine problems.

I mentioned that Van heard what he thought was a lash problem on the alternator or a bearing problem in the coupler. I took it in to Cleveland BMW on the 8th of May. Zach is going to pull the alternator and check out what is making the noise. It is hard to have the rig in the shop now that the weather is so warm. Here is hoping it is back soon.
