Default New to forum but owner for 15 yrs

I've owned my 90 Ranger for 15 years trouble free, but the engine taps badly at times suggesting it's time to dig deep and update a few things. Maybe an overhaul completely.
Anyone know why it would tap sometimes and not others? Still starts easy and runs smooth, just noisy at times and lacks power.
