Did you ever figure it out? My 70 with a 69 351c 2v heads with edelbrock system does the same thing. doesnt rattle on take off, load or decel. only when you let off the gas just enought to maintain speed, Right? MWhat kind of valve covers do you have? I have old scholl ford M/T black crinkle finned aluminum covers and I think the walls are too thick and the clearance between the side wall and the rockers are so close that at some wierd point of pressure they slightly tap the covers. let me know your thoughts on that because I would really like to remedy the noise.
