Lifters

Ok so i put brand new lifters in when i rebuilt my engine. Now i can hear one of them tapping on a cold start, it fades away after the car warms up. But it taps when i shift and almost any RPM. Is there anything i can do to make the tapping stop? Or do i need to pull the cams off and take my lifters back and get another set of new ones? These lifters are still under warranty, i just dont want to pull the cams if i dont have too. I thought about using some lucas oil on my 500 mile oil change which is coming up soon.

Any ideas?

Also, the engine is a 1999 4.6L 2V.

Someone might tell you different but I think it's just the nature of the beast caused more from the lash adjusters.

My brother just went through the same exact problem. They tore apart his engine and found out his cams were too big for his valves. He had to get new cams.
