Here in Thailand There are no ( that I could find) any Ford mechanics. Got a 1978 351c out of
Australia to put in my 68 coupe above 50 mph I get a bad loud chattering I was lucky and
found a cam shaft , mine was worn on the lobes, now still have the noise , but no idle
clicking, driving me crazy,new timing chain and gears mains and rod bearing look OK. At the
time no lifters availible here. any ideas out there?

If you put th used lifters in from the worn cam shaft you have probably damaged the new cam also, you should always put in the correct type new lifters with a new cam. Sorry, that i what it sounds like.
