It has been a while since there is an update on my ride. Since i have got the car 2 years ago, it has a very annoying "Tick" "Tick" "Tick " sound when the engine reved over certain RPM. Since then I have been doing some online research and found out that the most Possible Culprit is the LMA. The Old design of Honda LMA have a tendency to have a problem with insufficient spring tension to push the VTEC Roker arm resulting in some interference of knocking in the engine.
Finally I took up the courage to go ahead and have it changed as i am very positive that the sound is caused by the LMA. So I bought 8 units of LMA (New Design is acutally a Large Spring).
LMA in pakage and kept submerged in Engine Oil before use.
Last weekend is the limit of my car mileage to change the Timing Belt, Engine Oil and Transmission Oil. So I took the opportunity to have the LMA repalced to solve the problem.
One Unit of OLD LMA removed and the next picture show that the new LMA already assembled into the Engine.

Since the CAM cover have been removed, I decided to Paint it to ensure it is in good condition. The old paint is stripped.
After: Stripped and Re-Painted.
