I recently sprung a leak in the valve cover gasket, and was not aware of this until the engine was a little more than a quart low. Now the engine is making a ticking noise synchronous whith the RPM's. Would this be a problem with the camshaft and lifters, or cylander bearings?

Most likely hydraulic lifter went flat from low oil and is not able to pump up. Change oil and filter and add Marvil Mystery oil directions on bottle.
