i uped my idle a bit the other day and now it seems quieter.
i also done the gasket with no change and good luck with the rocker change, let me know how ya go. i did two different rocker assembles and then changed them all around (the arms) with no change in both , so i hope you have better luck than me

If it goes quiet at the higher revs like you say, it may well be an oil pressure issue.

The main reason i pulled the engine out was because of oil pressure (had some silicone blocking the hole to the tensonor so it had massive chain slap) thats now fixed ail pressere guage seems to be reading around 3/4 of the way up the guage

Make sure when you get new lifters you get the retainer fitted to the lifter as the old one disintegrate in the rocker and the lifter can make noise from in the rocker by having a little extra clearance. Maybe a silly reply but are all the shims back in on top of the lifter too?

Cheers Joel
