Re: 954 rattle
Not wishing to insult your mechanical skills, but might it be possible you've reinstalled with the cam one tooth out?
I wonder this because when you say that just before winter it started making valve noise, that suggests the loose chain might have jumped at that time. If you've replaced it in that exact position, that will explain the continued noise.
