Doesn't sound like a lifter problem.

Did you measure for pushrod length after changing the cam? Whats your lifter preload?[/quote]

I have tried pre-load at 10thou and now have preload set at 45thou and still same prob.

if its just a ticking noise, its probably fine, if its a tapping or knocking noise theres a problem, I've found the std bolt on yella terra rockers to be noisy, regardless of how they are installed.

Yeah, it sounds like it could be the bolt on yella terra r.r.s . It was a bit rattly with standard cam and 1.72 r.r.s and is worse with 2031 cam and head work done also flash tuned and running a healthy 220rwkws.
After trialing diff preload settings, valve train geometry blah blah blah
Not sure weather to try a set of adjustable r.r.s (different brand) or roller lifters.

Fairy all i ment by the bolt is that they are the standard non adjustable bolton roller rokers nothing to do with any bolts, just the old bolt on pedistal roller rockers. :lol:

Ive changed gaskets for paceys and made sure no leaks
this is not the cause of my prob, but i agree on your thoughts,check and double check exhaust manifold leaks before opening up engine
