motor has a ticking noise
My crystal ball says… you might be asking a question…
also, trucks around these earlier years are known for getting pin holes or small holes in the exhaust manifold that can sound like a lifter tick. I had it happen to my f-150
It’s running, have a nice day.
Check for a loose spark plug.
Check for exhaust leaks
Pull the valve covers and look for broken springs or rockers or lifters.
