Q: What is Ticking/Tapping noise coming from engine once RPM's reach 2k? on 1995 Ford Escort

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Engine lost timing upon initial restart death noise. Towed home, replaced head. Engine runs GREAT except when revving accelerator ticking/tapping noise @ 2k rpm underload and in park. Checked connecting rod bearing anyways, but NOT a knocking sound.

how did you check the bearings?? what was the clearance??

could be a lifter or a bad valve seat.

Just checked to see if I could get some swinging in connecting rod bearings; doubtful if it's the vavle seat or lifters because I just replaced the head and would hear noise when idling.
