Subject: Re: Saab 99 engine ticking / engine failure curiosity

why would multiviscosity oil do this? to finalize the saga - I was sent a replacement part by one of the angels on this group and replaced in a few hours. There was wear on the cam lobe in question so there's still a little "ticking" but it runs like normal. the valve did *not* appear bent. good stuff. Thanks everyone!
