Engine noise advise

My 75 T Spark is at the garage at the moment as it has always had what appears to be tappet noise. This year, it just seems to be a bit worse.

It really does sound like tappets to me and I have checked the shim/bucket clearances with fealer guages and they are well out.

However, I have been told that it is more than likely one of me camshafts. I had the exhaust cam shaft replaced about 15-20,000 miles ago though, so not really sure. Any ideas folks?

Re: Engine noise advise

one of my 75's had the whole engine overhauled to sort out a noise.... did'nt work!! they are tappy. exhaust camshaft went on the 164 we had... not very helpful sorry.
But the clearances should be addressed
