Hi. I haven't found the cause of the rattle still. I have done about two thousand miles since though and it's got quieter if anything. Therefore, I'm thinking it can't be anything serious. It's never had a belt snap to my knowledge. It's only had one previous owner and I had a good chat with him, and there's no evidence the head has been off. It's only had two belt changes, and I did the most recent one. It had started making a noise before I changed all the pulleys and belts. The previous belts had been on since 2007, and about 20k miles and were cracking along the ply, and the valve timing was out a little bit but not much.
I've made a recording of the noise which I'll try to post ✉
