Hi everyone,
I just ressurected this spider. How do you think she sounds? My father feels she sounds a bit tinny. Could that be valve chatter?

Alfa engines are not as quiet as a Toyota... Some valve noise is normal - how are the cam to bucket clearances? I also hear intake noise because there are no air cleaners installed.

Exhaust leaks are common and often sound like valve noise. Listen around the exhaust with a length of hose - one end at your ear & the other end at any suspect areas. If won't amplify the sound but it will help pinpoint their location.
