Unhappy tappet noise

Did a hill climb at Olivers Mount Scarborough car was running great but on the drive home it developed a noise like tappets on one of the cylinder heads. Any ideas what the problem could be?

Re: tappet noise

if its very loud and has shims over buckets its possible one of the shims shot out of the bucket.

normally happens if you been red lining it.

if its not that loud it might be a clogged up oil filter but you would normally get the noise when the engine is cold all so check the oil level isn't low.

best thing to do like shamble says Post a video clip.
