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

Attached there is section of original service manual covering engine timing.
I have replaced few worn valve lifters without disturbing the timing with just removing cylinder head cover and camshaft.
I secured the chain to gear with zip ties, used a flexible rope to pull it upwards while removing/refitting the camshaft and checking/replacing valve lifters.
Remember to undo the camshaft tightening bolts slowly and evenly, otherwise you might bend/damage the camshaft.
It is good idea to have new cylinder head cover gasket on hand.
Good luck!
