The 304 in my cj ticks from the valve cover area after I shut it down. This happens without even starting the motor warm or cold, ex I go out in the morning and roll it over it will tick for 10-15 seconds. The ticking lasts longer the warmer the motor is. I pulled the valve cover and bumped the starter then put my hand on the valve spring and could "feel" the ticking. I understand what goes on in the head but don't know what could cause this. Bent valve, collapsed lifter, ??? Oh I put this motor in my jeep at the begining of last summer without a rebuild or anything. Just wanted to go jeepin. I think I found a 360 to replace it with so I am not worried about it just curious as to what is causing this. Thanks for the help guys.
