Answers :

This would not be just rings. Rings do not tap, and rings do not make white smoke. Rings make smoke that is often described as blue, even though it also has some white.

\012White smoke, on the other hand, usually is a LOT. and quite visible and thick. Some say it smells sweet. This is coolant in the combustion chamber....

\012I sugges that the tapping be diagnosed, then decide what to do, as surgery may be too costly to make any sense.

\012A valve repair, and a head R&R and resurface, check for cracks, and put back on just MIGHT make sense to spend the $$ .
