Ticking sound at first startup and after driving a while. Not an exhaust leak. It is a new rebuilt 355, new crank, rods, pistons, bearings. Old cam, lifters, everything else. I have adjusted the rockers like 5 times with the engine running. I'm left thinking its the lifters or maybe a bent push rod? Can I diagnose this with just the valve covers off while its running or should I just take the intake off?

How do I tell if a lifter is bad while its in my hand? Not sure of the mileage on the old lifters but they were in my previous engine. I never checked them out before putting them in the new engine.

Well, you had to have the valve covers off to adjust the rockers with it running.
Did you notice anything then?

No, it doesn't do it all the time. I'm going to let it idle until it starts making the noise then see.

Check you egr butterfly I have the same thing on my truck. Once it warms up its gone, I was confused to what it was, took it to the dealer and that's what it was.
