Finally got a chance to look at it…it was a blown fuse. Luckily there were 2 spare original Lucas fuses in the fusebox cover. 

I didn't have time to drive it but I ran the engine for about 10 minutes just idling in the driveway. The temp gauge never quite reached halfway which is where it usually is while driving. The oil remained the same as it was cold (about 60psi). Maybe not a good test since it was not fully warm but the temp gauge was up to around 1/3 which is not cold anyway.
The oil weight is an unknown as the po had changed it. I think I’ll change it for one of the 20-50W racing or classic car formulas and see if it makes a difference in the pressure or the valve noise.

After I do the brakes I'll take a look at adjusting the valves. One thing at a time!
