IIRC the 16 valve engines use hydraulic lifters though - the top end shouldn't be all that noisy really. I agree re gearlever - mine moves around a bit and has done so for over 4 years and 30K miles never getting any worse.

The top end on my engine is tappety as it is a 8v engine same as yours I think Mike
