[ROVERNET - UK] Clickety Clat

Greetings. have you tried checking the amount of oil on top of the camshaft 
and followers? If you lift the valve cover after running the engine for 
about 30 secs there should be lots of oil all over the valve gear. If not 
then the flow is the problem. Does the noise increase as revs are decreased? 
That is if the engine is revved up to about 3000Rpm and then let off quickly 
is there a loud clattering noise. If so there may be a problem with the 
timing chain or tensioners. Hopefully this is helpful.
