If your running anti pump lifters they will tap a little no matter what at idle. What kind of lifters are you running?

I had a problem similar, noticed it while
priming and never started the engine. Turned
out the rear cam bearing not installed right.
For the whole story, see this topic:
NO OIL TO TOP - NEW ENGINE
Hope this helps,
