Clue...the tapping hydraulic sound seems to come from within the engine, the head itself.

Top man, Vocky diagnosed the same issue with my car with the previous owner, he was also very thankful. 👍

I always use a torque wrench on them (actually on anything I can get in at).
Partly for avoidance of this such issues and also because the head is weak.

I must also say that Vocky provided me with support on an engine issue too. Though the fault was of my own making.

Thoroughly helpful chap!

Vocky also diagnosed my old engine problem from listening to the noise down the phone. I think he said “it’s really fcuking fcuked that”.

He was right :D
