A good place to start would be a compression and leak down test. Also if you are considering doing any of the work yourself then a must have book will be "How to rebuild and modify your Porsche 911 Engine" by Wayne Dempsy . If you are considering having an expert do the job then by all reports you can't do better than Henry Schmidt.

Henry, I had one of the problems you described my rocker shaft had shifted position causing valve train noise. It was simple to fix but potentially devastating if let go unchecked.
