Question Lifter Noise?

My 1987 560 SL has a distinct valve/lifter tap after warming up. When first started, though, its as quiet as can be. Not a rod knock or anything that dramatic. Just annoying. Any thoughts?

1986 560SEC: 150,000 miles, runs great, but I've got to sell it (too many cars for one man)
1987 560SL: 122,000 miles, used to run poorly, now (thanks to forum), runs great!
1997 GMC Jimmy: Turned out to be a turkey.
1989 T-Bird Super Coupe: 150,000 miles, still runs great. Ford got it right.
