I would say it would be a good idea to run the overhead on it and set all the valves. Also you may look at Amsoil or another synthetic. They reduce the chatter quite a bit.

Well if it was me...

I would adjust those valves...

Then starting using 2 cycle oil in the fuel. That will quiet down the injectors and injection pump.

A good HD engine oil or Synthetic will finish it off... I'm using Exxon XD-3 15W-40 and purrs like a kitten... XD-3 is certified by Cummins...
