try changing timing or octane rating of your fule, i'd bet it's not a lose rocker. if by chance it is try doing a search and you'll find a lot of how to info.

i had pretty much the same problem on my 350.

a friend of mine had to set the valve lash cause one of the rockers were loose.

after a few days the noise came back it turned out the nut for the rocker kept backing off bought new ones and so far so good
