Thanks to everyone involved.
I will report the success.

Well, it worked, sort of, the clicking or clacking did stop completely. The engine is as quiet as a mouse now but I still have a pressure leak in the coolant system. I was forced to remove the motor and disassemble it completely so the crack in the block at cyl #6 can be fixed, which I suppose will entail having it re sleeved completely.
Never the less, the pining of the sleeves was simple and did completely solve the noise.

Hilarious and very thoughtful. I have an 03 that I have a love hate relationship with. Haven't had that problem yet but I'm aware of the shortcomings of the Bosch 4.6. Thanks
