The info below was just provided to me by one of the most knowledgable Cobra folks I know. Hope it gives you the info you need.54deuce said:Anyway, head tick on drivers side heard about that also.

"The head tick is caused because one of the valves on the rear driver side head when it does not receive enough cooling and therefore warps a little which in turn causes the tick. It is a design flaw within the head. The fix is to completely remove the head and modify it or get one of the new set of heads Ford put out. One of the preventive pieces they make now is the even flow head cooling mod and another system that escapes me at this moment. Some Cobras get the tick and then some do not. High Speed runs will increase the chance of it because of the tight cylinder to wall clearance that increases the temps significantly."
