ive had a couple of noisy lifters on an ed and found the shims were fitted upside down, not allowing enough oil to get to the lifter. changed them to the right way up and no more noise.

I've seen the head gasket fail internally and bleed oil from the font galley into the area behind the timing cover. It starves the rocker gear for oil and makes them hell noisy.
