If it's a really regular tick it might be a lifter. If it's more of a vibrating rattle might be a broken head bolt.

And there I was thinking if you could hear the lifters rattling everything was ok. Just start worrying when they go quiet.....



But yeah. sounds like lifters. use a lump of wood as a sounder and try to find out where the sound is located.
