Well, I have a D16Y8 head D15B8 block mini-me swap and have had some valve rattle for a while now.

the head was freshly rebuilt, and I adjusted all the valves once the head was on the motor and it was fairly loud and noticeable. After about 300 miles I adjusted them again and they got a bit quiter, but they are still quite a bit noisy. Now I'm 100% certain the valves are adjusted correctly, but they seem awfully loud to me, could anything else be out of spec to make what sounds very distinctly like valve rattle?

.7 intake, .9 exhaust, Specifically TDC of compression stroke for each cylinder with the dizzy cap off to triple check and a long ass screwdriver resting on the top of the piston confirming TDC with the dizzy.
