96 Taurus 24V - engine noise

Hi,
I haven't found any posts in this newsgroup with engine problem I have with my
96 Taurus LX Wagon (255k kms=160k miles)
There is some srtange noise coming from a valve cover of rear bank of cylinders.
I checked it with my stethoscope: the noise is not regular - like couple of
small stones inside but, what is strange for me - this doesn't change engine's
rpms. Engine works smoothly. It looks for me like a camshaft has too much play.
Bought Haynes manual to confirm this - but it did not- but it says that there is
a "sevice limit" for camshaft play. How hard is this to repair? Any other ideas?
please help
Gregory
beside this problem my Taurus is going very strong, no problems with a
transmission, heater etc. Maybe because of scheduled maintenace. Only weak
points in this car are ball joints - changed them maybe five times already.
