some hydraulic lifters are just noisy after a number of years. the ones in the 302 in my 88 grand marquis make it almost sound like a diesel for the first few minutes until the oil gets flowing well. even then it still sounds like an old truck running down the road. You may have to replace all the lifters to quiet the noise. There are other members that may have better points to make about this though, so hang out and see what they say.
