1984 190d Lifter noise / Clatter

Can anyone tell me if the lifters in the 2.2 diesel engine need periodic adjusting? My engine sounds noiser than it use to, or is there any adjustment for the timing chain that I would need to check? Thanks

Yes, the lifter can go bad and make a clatter noise. In certain circumstances, this can add drag to the camshaft, place additional stress on the timing chain, and lead to premature breakage of the timing chain.

This was the condition on my parts car.

No, I have not done any repairs to the parts car.

Working on valve lifters should not require work on the camshaft or timing chain. So, solving the immediate problem should not change your injection pump timing.
