fittted a rebuilt DG waterboxer engine to my 1988 T3 I seem to be getting a rattling/knocking from the tappets
I'm presuming that it's the hyraulic cam followers as I slackend off the tappets and the rattling/knocking went away except on tickover 
haven't taken on a run as I thought i"d ask here first but I thought it might be a lack of oil in the follower if it is will it sort itself out?
