I guess it depends where the microphone was, but it sounds very "tappety" to me.  What valve clearances did they record?

I haven't had any details on what the valve clearances they set it to. I have assumed they knew what they were doing! 

I'll get in touch with them tomorrow.

Geoff Page Racing rebuilt the engine, for a princely sum too! 

It has got better so I'll just see how it goes for now. They may well adjust some things when I take it back after 500 miles.

Does not sound to good to me. As the tappets are shimmed and not hydraulic they should be almost silent from the start. I did a engine out top end rebuild last year on my Elite 504 and hardly any tappet noise.
