Marco I hope you didn't purchase that 86 380 se yet 'with the tappet noise with out making sure that isn't a worn cam shaft lobe or lobes ' I bought an 85 380 se last year thinking that it was just noisy lifters ,thinking North American V8;s I was mistaken .However I ended up learning from my mistake I replaced the cam and I like my 380se. This was the problem I had {the lobes were worn down for #7 & #3 exhaust valves} The engine had about 140,000 miles at the time.For some reason 'I have read; the right cam wears out first. Gook luck .
