My Valiant has some tapping noise once warm, but not bad. Ensure that valves are adjusted and that made the biggest difference for me.

My slant has almost 300k, I am very interested in a rebuild, but there is very little oil usage and still has great drive-ability. However I cant wait to see what it looks like inside after all these years.

Your Valiant would have solid lifters which require a periodic lash adjustment - unless the head on that slant 6 is much newer than the rest of the car.
Its the original head, so is there a valve and lash adjustments? I know my dad adjusted the valves in April.
