      Hello
      The lifters are adjustable and need setting on a regular basis. It is about
      a 20 min job
      The lifters tend to go tight rather than slack.
      Remove the cam cover set the clearances and inspect the camshaft,[it is
      probably worn]
      Good luck.
      Mark woodhouse.
