    Ticking/Clicking sound from engine

    Well, I have a science project and it involves an engine. So I decided I'd just use one of my spare Honda engines instead of shopping around yard sales for a lawnmower engine. So anyway, I set up my stand and various things so it can run on a bench not in a bike. So I start it up for the first time in a couple months and it's making a ticking or clicking sound. But it's not at a steady rhythm like if the valves were contacting the piston. It's kind of intermittent. I pulled the ignition plate to see if possibly the cam chain cam off one of the pulleys but it was fine. When it's completely cold I'll check the valves again just to be safe. But what else is there to check if none of this works? Where else would the ticking come from? Here is a video to try and show the sound the engine makes.

    Hehe, thanks. Still waiting for the engine to be completely cool to check the valves.

    Yeah. Thanks again. I wanted a nice stand for the science project display. Didn't want to have the bare engine rolling around on a desk and looking stupid with wires all over the place. I'm going to check the valves tomorrow morning and post up the results before I leave for school.
