Oil advice

I have a late 2000 10v JTD that has done a steady 160k, I currently have some cheap 10-40 in it for now, when the engine is cold its quite and sounds good, it gets hot and the top is rather loud, very tappy. Any idea, better/different grade oil or is the top end tired??

Do you know that the 8v/10v JTD have tappets that need servicing & adjusting?
