TICKING NOISE

1995 Ford Probe

Noises problem
1995 Ford Probe 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 120000 miles

I just replaced the timing belt, oil pump, water pump, thermostat, and distributor in my 1995 probe gt. Whenever I start it it makes this ticking sound around the center of the engine. There is about 60 pounds of oil pressure and it seems to sound great except for the ticking noise. What could it be?

Sounds like a valve lifter leakdown problem if it goes away in a few minutes-

Ok thanks. Just wondering what if it doesn't go away within a few minutes? It speeds up with acceleration but its always there. Thanks.
