    I've given up trying to get my distributor to be quiet, I've shimmed it so minimal play, fitted brass gear which helped a bit and neither stopped it completely. Does it more around 1700-2000rpm on the run down from revs. I guess wear on the cam gear may contribute but that's not easily sorted...
    Try replacing the cam chain , that cured my dizzy rattle

                Weirdly missed most off the end of that post. I was going to say; I've just received a crank shaft front oil seal and the next job is to fit it with the pump in situ. I ordered inlet and rocker cover gaskets as well as an INA cam chain after reading your post. I hope I get the sort of results you report as well as an oil tight engine at long last!

                  A couple of the lifters were not working properly, easily compressed with fingers.
                  Can’t complain, them and the camchain have done 260,000 miles, mostly at higher than stock power levels!
