I want to say there is a problem with the oil pickup tube o ring where it goes into the pump on some of those engines. My 6.0 had that problem and they are basically the same engine.. Does it run bad when it does it or just rattle? I would think if a lifter was loosing prime it would miss on a cyl while rattling.. I think they are hydraulic roller lifters, keep in mind I'm just thinking there. But that's basically all it could be on the top end
