Hi,
when the engine gets temperature the valve-train makes noise like "too big valve-lash".
Now I am thinking about bad lifters or a bad oil-pump (loosing oil-pressure when oil is hot )?

maybe it coul be an other thing ?
I have no experience about my current combo.
It is a 351 shortblock with 302 heads (stud mount rockers)

???

I wish they were rollers, but they are stock .
The valve-train makes no noise when the engine is cold.
only when heating up to "drivable" temperature . !

You probably have a lazy lifter that likes it in the morning when the oil is cold and thick. Try running 20w50 oil on the next oil change and see if that helps. Not much else to do but change the lifters if thats the case. Shouldn't hurt to run it though.
