While taillight lenses for your Mighty Max can be found readily and inexpensively on eBay, entire assemblies or housings would have to come from salvage yards or individuals scrapping out their vehicle. Check out auto salvage yards, eBay, Craigslist, etc. It took me 3 months to find a driver-side door for my 1990 Mighty Max. I found it a "Pick Your Part" salvage yard. It was from a Dodge Ram 50 of approximate vintage. It was missing the glass window, but my window was useable. Fortunately, Dodge Ram 50 and Mitsubishi Mighty Max parts are pretty much the same truck.

sounds like maybe it is what it is. I know alot of OHC engines that do this and there is nothing wrong with them just the lobes slapping the valves. Now for the metal shavings.. its never a good sign but keep the oil changed and check ever 3000 or less miles to see how its doing

The starter is at fault,the contacts are bad in the starter,and it is drawing to much amps from the ignition.

A ticking sound is usually a valve and if it stops at higher rpms I would guess it is oil related. Seems like the oil pump might be getting tired and not pumping enough at low rpms.
