Thanks guys, it's sounding like a stuck lifter. tried to sea foam it, but it didn't work...
will probably replace the lifters in the next few weeks.

Sounds fun. I haven't had a chance to work on it yet. Someone trashed my rental so I've been on that.

One of the three fans stopped working I'm more worried about the ticking. Hoping it's just a lifter and not something more serious.

Having the engine rebuilt as we speak from Adam's Metallizing in Lancaster.
learned quite a few thing removing the engine... mostly that i hate the E-Torx bolts on top of the bell housing.
