Engine Flush Recommendations

I am in the process of trying to quiet down the valve noise in my rescued '81 380SL. I seem to have at least two noisy valves on each side. Cams and rockers are good. I am not finding anything obviously loose in the cam lobes/rockers/valves, so I believe the problem is in the hydraulics of the ball studs.

I have heard that there is an engine flush used in these situations. Any experience or opinions?
