The ticking you describe sounds like an exhaust leak. Possibly a cracked
manifold or a bad manifold gasket. I don't know about the missing. With
both the missing and ticking seeming to be in concert with each other it may
be related to a stuck egr or broken egr line. I'm guessing at this point.

Subject: FTE Perf - fire out the tailpipes

Hey Guys,
My friend has a question for guys. In order to win a bet, he has to rig
something up so he can shoot fire out of his trucks tailpipe so he can win a
bet. We have seen it in magazines and on t.v. but still not sure quite how
to do it besides a sparkplug, a switch and flooding the engine. He does not
seem to worry about ruining the truck either because it is a beater. So if
you guys have any ideas, we thank you in advance
Lee

Lee,

I have never done it before. For the life of me I can't
thing of one reason why I would want to. I can think of a
couple of ways but I have images of you guys standing behind
this truck with blackened faces and a dumbfounded look.
Complete wiper system including nozzle. Army surplus flame
thrower ;-), Jerry can with fuel pump and BBQ igniter. How
big is the bet? Is it worth it?

regards
