Well...

Engine back together again with replacement lifters and camshafts from my Cavalier's old cylinder head. New timing belt, tensioner and rollers fitted and fired it up yesterday.

Very noisy - the lifters haven't been in an engine since 2015.  :(

Fired it up again tonight and everything has quietened down nicely. Now to put new bolts in the crankshaft pulley (it only has two in at the moment) and properly refit all the hoses and timing belt cover before moving on to the next thing - trying to get rid of the fault codes.

Got a diagnostic machine as the Cavalier has a load of faults as well.

Why? Why don't I just buy a reliable modern car...?
