2.3L DOHC Valve train noise

Please help. Just did a head gasket on a 2.3L DOHC, and I put the engine back together, started it up, and it has valve train noise. I give it a few minutes to go away, but it hasn't gone away. There is inconsistent wear on the cams, suggesting that is where the noise could be coming from. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
