Another suggestion. I had the same sound from my engine about 1000 miles after my rebuild. I thought that I had a chain tensioner failure.

After some investigation, I found the rocker arm pivot had come loose on the exhaust side due to not torqueing them properly. I could of sworn I was hearing the slapping of the chain.
