This is rather amusing to me. You must be the third fellow in as many weeks who has come on here complaining about the noise in the valvetrain.

On the other hand, we have just as many fellows who come on and ask about putting a gear drive in the motor because they like the noise.

Like I said, it's just sorta funny how there ain't no pleasin' anybody anymore.....

If you DO have mechanical roller lifters with a hydraulic cam, either install hydraulic rollers (MY suggestion) or replace them with hydraulic rollers...
