Question about 1967 Ford Fairlane
390 com 280 cam aluminum roller rocker arms with hydrolic lifters are noisy
I had a 2002 GMC pickup that developed noisy lifters following a routine oil change. Everything was fine with the truck, I drove it up on some front end ramps, changed the oil (at about 100,000 miles), started it up to back off the ramps and had a terrible chatter that would not go away. My mechanic said it was the lifters and it was going to be an expensive fix. He suggested that I try replacing half of the oil with Lucas Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer, before I spent the money on cracking the engine open. I tried it, and the noise went away. I put another 30,000+ miles on the truck before I sold it, and never had any more engine noise. Every time I changed the oil, I would use about half regular oil and about half of the Lucas product named above. It comes in a gallon jug, so one jug is good for about two oil changes. This is probably not a fix for more severe problems, but it worked well for me.

You are probably running low on oil unless you have been dogging the engine from red light to red light then you probably stretched the push rods you can also tighten the lifters

you might want to try tapping it back in, but only if you got a brass drift as that will not mare the stud or threads. back in the day i would drill and pin each one to keep them from pulling out. as this was a commen problem with early ford and chevy high R.P.M. engines. that went away when someone invented the screw in stud. but you can drill and pin each one with out pulling off the heads it can be a chore but its a cheep fix compaired to the alternative. also did you replace the lifters? i ask this because if one was stuck maybe the rest will stick too. i am a chevy person, but i am a little parcel to fords as thats what i had in the day a 1967 fastback 289 4 speed. hope this helps.
