Long story short , car had very loud ticking.
I had great oil pressure on a mechanical gauge. So I tore off the cam tower to change my oil ring , it wasn't bad so I took the cam out to check the oil passages and there was a big ol chunk off rubber or cured black rtv in in it. I have picture but I'm not sure how upload here from my phone.
So considering the car was driven a 1000+ miles with no oil to the lifters. Should I replace them before I button it back up? How should they fell when I squeeze them?
Solved! I finally got it back together and the driver side is absolutely silent. The only issue is without the previous extremely loud ticking I can hear the passenger side ticks now. So I gotta take off the passenger side cam tower and look it over.
