I am tempted to try the ATF flush method, it seems to work on ea81 and ea82 lifters... (1 qt atf to 3 qts oil.....)
i just hope this isnt hurting my motor! (the ticking) but it certanly is annoying..

I suspect it only ticks when there are other people around to hear it :\

1) detremine which side it is and which rocker Then pull the rocker shaft assemble off . If it's the left bank making noise (drivers) take off the front tower pedestal from the shaft, if it's the right side (passenger)take off the rear tower pedestal.Look at the metering oil hole on the shaft there is usually a piece of silicone stuck in the hole
2).If not there go to the affected rocker , see if there is any oil present coming out of the hole at the end of the rocker when you push down on the valve lash adjuster ( which should be soft and spongy) You can also "gently" pull the valve lash adjuster out of the rocker with some pliers and clean out the passage in the rocker
3) reassemble every thing and start engine and keep it at aprox 2000 rpm
NOTE : It may take 10-20 minutes to bleed the air out of the valve lash adjuster , some times running for 5-10 minutes then shutting the engine off let it sit 5 minutes and restarting it purges the air faster
hope that helps

I resealed the oil pump on my EA82, and even though I cranked it for 20 seconds with the coil pulled to get the oil circulating, I still had some lifter tapping for about 5 minutes, then it went away.
