First you got to determen where its comming from, surley you can hear if its comming from top of engine or from oil pan, i'am not there to hear it so its hard to tell what it is, but i can take some gusses on what it could be. You said a while back it started tapping, that could be a loose or woren rocker or lifter does it run on all cyls. no miss, good oil pressure, could be a connecting rod. The millage is high and things do wear out.

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
