Sometimes rocker shaft screws come loose in the 8v. Here's a not very clear picture of a mangled rocker shaft screw that came loose.

Valve lash tool will be here today, I'll report back if there's any change in sound once it's done. Here's hoping that's all it is!

Alright, valves have been adjusted. .006 for intake and .008 for exhaust. Motor is definitely quieter but that inconsistent knock is still there. I'm almost thinking it's a cracked exhaust manifold or flex plate. I did find some small metal bits in the oil when I changed it, but that could have also been from me having to drive a screwdriver into the oil filter since the p.o. decided 200 ft lbs was the correct torque spec lol. I railed it around the block, flooring it to 4k up to 4th gear and the knock didn't get any worse, which I'm sure if it was a bearing it would have.

Top end noise. https://www.suzuki-forums.com/suzuki-sidekick-escudo-vitara-geo-x/261223-top-end-noise.html

If you scroll down to the videos on the thread, you can hear the same low knocking sounds in the first video.
