1964 lemans project

I have a 396 big block chevy engine/had a worn cam shaft (solid cam)/I bought a new hydraulic camshaft/lifters/springs etc/ oil pressure at 25 idle /I can not get the lifters to quiten down ,no matter what /Tried adjusting without engine running according to spec,got to zero lash,turn an additional 1/4 to 1/2 turn /still lifter clicks/I do have rollor rockers ,could they be worn out??? They were the same ones that were on the engine before i changed cam shafts.Any help would be appreciated/comp cams wont e-mail me back /and i have unsuccessfully been on the phone on hold with them 4 differant times,one time over an hour and have not got a tech to talk to me as of yet.Car runs ok just has lifter chatter and no cam lope ,which it was suppose to have a little bump.Im confused and about spent out.Thanks
