Grrrr. Dang forgetfulness. Can't say rookie error. In my eagerness to share the progress, I forgot that the lash has to be reset after warmed up. Much better. We'll see tomorrow morning whether or not the old tapping is also gone.

Please pardon my digression.

Yeah, my next question would be if you set them again hot.

Higher lift rate cams usually have lesser lash settings than stock cams.
I set mine to .012 intake and .014 exhaust which is .002 tighter than stock.

If you are up on keeping the lash in check, you can tighten them a bit more yet for more quiet operation but you have a bit more risk to deal with.

All is good! The silence of the rockers and the old clacking being gone is music to my ears!

I think I will go to the first post and updated it so people don't have to read the whole thread!

What a great idea! This would be a best practice for anyone who starts what turns out to be a long, involved discussion. I will try to remember this the next time I find myself in a similar situation.
