350 small block vortec heads the lifters rattle?

If it's actually the rockers arms that are "chattering" while the engine runs, you may need to adjust the lash. If there are Solid lifters in the engine, you may want to switch to hydraulic lifters and adjust the rockers to the moment of "zero lash". Adjust them in pairs per cylinder while the lifters are in the down position (both valves closed). When you reach zero lash on the rocker arm (the pushrod will suddenly stop spinning freely in your fingers) add an additional quarter turn to the rocker arm nut to set the "pre-load" of the lifter. This just means that the pushrod will be pushed down slightly in the spring loaded hydraulic lifter and when the engine runs, the oil pressure will keep pressure on the lifter and thus the rocker arms will run silently.
