All Mits engines of interest to us (4G63, 4G93) have hydraulic tappets and a reet bugger they are too!
Although according to accepted wisdom they don't need adjusted, they racket they can sometimes produce makes you wish you could. A good semi or fully-synthetic oil of 10w50 grade or similar (most folks have problems with the 'thinner' 0w40 grades) and a decent filter with a good anti-drain flap can cure them but it is a bit of a black art finding a good filter.
Hmm, downloaded that one but it has no mention of the parts you list. Maybe they are all gone http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >
Academic anyway as I have many more things demanding my £120 than tappets! Especially considering the little blighters have actually been quieter since my last service than at any time since I bought the car. With me just approaching 5000m they have only recently started ticking very quietly occasionally, 1500 miles was about the most I could expect before!
