1993 T-chain rattle even after changing

I have a problem with a 1993 SL500.

At 138,000 miles.The timing chain started to rattle when the car is left overnight, most of the times it just the first start in the morning. and it only persists for less than 2 seconds.

So I got it changed with the correct new Iwes timing chain, new tensioner , new upper guides (4) and fresh oil.

But after a few days, it started to rattle again !!
Anyone encoutered a similar problems ? any soloutions ?

I heard of the old oil filter valve problem, and that replacing it would solve this. But I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance

I too think the timing chain change maybe was a red herring.
