I hate ticking, it can be anything. In my case, my radiator fan.

Stethoscop-ing

I was just all over the motor, can hear it clearly, but being able to pinpoint it seem futile!!!! How did you find out it was the fan (that was only thing I couldn't get my stethoscope on ...)

The good news, I don't think it is the lifters or an exhaust leak .....

I was pretty sure I pinpointed it, so I unscrewed the fan and turned the engine on, then no ticking.

The best way I have found for small block chebbies is the factory method.
Engine off # 1 tdc compression stroke(verify it is compression stroke-vital) #2. loosen both rockers on Cyl #1, pick either the intake or exh. valve to start tighten it down slowly while twisting the pushrod.When you feel a slight drag on the pushrod to twisting go 1 more complete turn.#. Do the other valve on this cylinder same way.Now rotate the engine 90 degrees in the normal direction of rotation with a breaker bar and socket.Now cyl. #8 is ready to be done in the same manner as number 1.Another 90 degrees and do cyl#4.90 more and do #3,90 more do #6, 90 degrees more do #5, 90 more do #7, 90 more do #2 and you are done and have rolled the engine over 2 times while adjusting your valves. This method will center the plunger in the lifter and if noise still remains it is not an adjustment problem.
