Jim Terrell (Boca Raton, Florida) - Ford E150
Jim is using a modified truck engine in his boat. It was making a ticking noise, and his mechanic said he has piston slap in one cylinder. Jim doesn’t know what piston slap is--can the engine go for years like this? No, it can’t--Tom and Ray explain piston slap, and say if it’s already making noise, engine is probably about to go. Jim needs a rebuilt engine.
