Renault Megane low revs engine rattle

Hi having just managed to change all 16 valves due to cam belt snapping, i have turned the key and it starts and runs but from idle to 2500rpm has a loud rattle which then stips and from then on quiet as a normal engine.
Is this judst the lifters just needing to fill themselves up with oil as a few of them had drained out or is this something far more serious.
Any help or suggestions would be great.
Currently in ta2mark's garage:
Megane 1.6 16v and espace 2.2 auto
