i just got don'e talking to a mechanic at a shop here in town, and they toldme to replace the valve cover gasket. the mech. said that a lot of the times an old gasket will crush down too far and the rocker arms will come up and start slapping the bottom of the valve cover. anyone ever heard of this? i guess its worth a shot if 7 and 11 don't work out. i don't think its the tensioner because i just changed it. and i don't see how the oil pump could start making noise right after i adjusted the valves.
Yes it happens

.07 and 11 on mine and pretty quiet.
