Decent enough guide there even if your taking it on yourself, good enough to show someone with decent enough hands.

Following that tutorial myself as my tappets have become "noisy"

Would re-conditioning them sort the loud tappy noise out?

8v lifters aren't like the ones above. I can't remember how you get them apart or whats best to do with them.

I have (For sale ) the special tool needed to push down the valve and then remove the rocker so you can withdraw the lifters. Has to be done one by one, but its easier than removing the cam box and disturbing the head gasket.
