4.6 liter 03' crown vic possible stuck lifter

I have a 2003 Crown Victoria 4.6 liter engine. Recently the engine has been making a clicking/ ticking noise from the right bank. I am pretty sure the lifter may be stuck or possibly collapsed, i dont think it is a rod knock. If you have any clue to what it may be drop me a line.

If the oil hasn't been changed regularly, stuck followers are common on these. Put in a can of Seafoam, drive it 20 miles, and change your oil. Then put 2-300 miles on, add seafoam, and do it again. Likely after the first time, the noise will be gone, but twice will clean all the crap out of the galleries.
