Did you check the tappets to see if there was any indentation from the valve stem ?

Have u checked the underside of rocker arms for wear? What about wear on the valve stems? Also , did u reuse same pushrods? U mentioned u installed new lifters, have u gone back and tried retorqing the rocker arms? Ir recommended to soak new lifters in fresh oil prior to installing, was this done?
