noisy lifters

garymck On my MF 35 gas tractor, I had noisy valves and I had a mechanic reset them to specs. But they are as noisy as before. Do you think an additive will help to quiet them down?
GEEBEE In most cases additives are just oil thickeners and will rarely quieten noisy lifters, the problem with setting older engines to original specs is the end of the rocker arms become indented and the feeler gauge doesn't give a true reading, you can either grind the ends of the arms or set them a little closer.
