Might sound a bit noisy, hard to tell with the audio. How were valves adjusted and what weight oil? If you pull a valve cover, can you tell if lifter is pumped up?

thanks, regular 10-40.
i am going to check the adjustment as soon as it warms up outside.
i was hoping that someone could tell by the sound.

the audio actually sounds close to standing at the car
