dont mean to be picky. but its 'rocker' cover.


is the rattle there at all at idle with the bonnet up?

if not, perhaps try get someone to listen to it. if its right at the front it could be a broken chain tensioner, letting the chain slap around.

first off check ure oil if its low, will caus lack of oil to the rocker gear and it will rattle pretty bad.

other than that good chance you have broken a lifter or one of the cahin guides
