Valve noise

Hemijohn,
I have a 472 crate engine. No problems at all except like you, I think the valve noise is to loud for hydraulic lifters.
I cranked down on the adjusters a 1/4 turn and helped the worst ones. May go down a little more, What you think? :D

I have been told that some motors had the rocker arms tapping the valve covers. If you pull a cover you should be able to tell or I would think if they are the chrome type you could push on them and it should get louder. My 426 is that way but I have not checked it because they are replacing my motor due to other problems.
