I finally looked a little deeper. Checked the exhaust/manifold/y pipe connections - all is tight.
Drained oil - looked ok - no metal, added 1 qt marvel mystery oil and new filter- No change
Removed serpentine belt to eliminate tensioner - no change.
The tick seems to come from both sides of the motor just under the valve covers?
I hooked up an external oil pressure guage - 55 - 60 lbs @ idle cold.
I just think the upper part of the engine is not getting oil.
