Renault Scenic RX4 - Engine Noise*Fixed*

Dear All
Please could any body help. I have a Renault Scenic Rx4 X reg 2000 petrol, with a very noisy top end. On investigation I removed the cam cover to discover the cam journals were very worn, feeling sure this was the cause of the noise I then replaced the cylinder head (retaining the old pulleys/ vvt ). To my dismay on reassembly the noise is still present. The noise is present during tick over and suddenly dissapears when revs reach approx 2000 only to reappear as revs reduce. Given that the crank is fine, new cylinder head and camshafts, could anybody tell me if there is anything else that can cause this almighty din.
Thanks in advance
kind regards
