you will have to check your oil pressure with an oil pressure gauge. it could be a problem with your oil pump ( or a blocked gauze on the oil pump) and the tappets noise is related to the oil pressure.

SOURCE: Tappets making a constant noise
i would suggest asking your mechanic which viscosity(thickness) oil he put back in and check it against the manufacturers recommendation as if it isto thin then it will make your tappets unusally noisey if he has put in the correct oil then i would say that they were quiet because of the old gungy oil and they either need adjusting or if they are hydraulic then the lifters need replacing
