It seems I may have a bad lifter. Makes a small amount of tapping noise at idle, but clacks much louder as the RPMs go up. I have tried flushing the enging and replacing the oil a couple of times and the noise seems to abate and then come back after a short period of driving. To replace these lifters, can I get to them without having to pull the heads off? Is there something else I should be worried about?
