I had the same problem with my 2155. I have my springs centered and that does help, and oiling and cleaning of course helped. I don't know about that cement advice though. I would get a bit nervous about cementing the spring to my valve cap. But if you are comfortable I guess you could try it out...
Just out of curiosity; have you looked at the fifth valve slide "nuts" (not exactly sure what to call it)? After listening more carefully I noticed that some of the rattling was coming from there. It was just that they weren't as tight as they could be. That actually got rid of every last bit of that annoying rattle sound.
Good luck, and have a good new year,
