I know you adjusted them quite a few times when you installed the cam did you put it in Lobes down? and when you alligned the timing makrs did you check to see if the exhaust valve was tight? if it was you need to rotate the engine 180 and then make your adjustments.

yes cam was installed lobes down, i set the valves right after the inital build when it was on TDC ive been through them repeatedly you can see through the rocker cover when there up or down when you adjust them.

Ok just checking... Did you by chance replace the timing chain and guides? you may be hearing that instead?
