Where to Purchase Valve tappets?

Since I bought my Alfa the car has had valve tappet that are ticking. Unfortunately it seems almost impossible to get hold of new valve tappets in ireland so I wonder if there is any company in United Kingdom our an international company that can deliver to ireland

My Alfa is from 1997 1.8 16v.

Hi, before you go to the expense of changing them have you tried doing the valve lash process.
It will only work with hydraulic followers, I'm not sure if the early ts's had these or shims


It worked on my jtd
