This has been traced to insufficient oil reaching the rocker gear and, despite thorough flushing of the engine and trying another oil filter, the problem persists. Has anyone out there experienced this problem and, if so, how did they solve it? The engine has only done 81k and only about 5k in the last 8 years.

If not then further investigation is needed. It would also be good to strip the rockershaft to see the condition of the shaft and the internal surfaces of rocker arm barrel. They can wear and if too bad will need replacement.
