Did you change the tensioner while you had it apart? http://www.napaonline.com/Search/MultiImagePopup.aspx?A=N... My book doesn't show it being a interference engine so maybe the bearing in the tensioner is bad

Mr. Hemi I thank you for reply.It seems when viscosity of the oil break down due to lack of change, this ticking starts.Thanks again! Say you gotta Hemi?
