You guys are weird.

I cleaned the oil control orifice and replace the o-ring, bolted the rocker arm assembly back on, tightened the bolts which were loose when I started, did another valve lash, reinstalled the valve cover, distributor, spark plugs, and installed the new spark plug wires.

She started up and ran--I didn't make her worse!

She still made noise, but I went back and watched the video. She is definitely quieter!

Shouty has said to track down noises with a long screwdriver. It seemed like the alternator, which is "new," but I will try degreasing everything.

I do not know when I replaced that alternator, but it looks new, so I probably did not install it too long before taking her off of the road.
