replaced lifters now what?

when i replaced the lifters several were collapsed but there was no wear on the base that rides on the cam. i did not notice any abnormal wear on the pushrods, or rockers. after start up it was pretty quiet but as it reaches temp it starts to tick again. not bad but not totally fixed. what did i miss? i will pull the valve cover tomorrow and inspect all again . any suggestions? i do not have an exhaust leak and i assume that the cam is ok because of no wear on the lifters.

If you are certain that it is valve train noise, then you might check to see if you are getting oil up to your rockers. What is your oil pressure at normal operating temperature?

Yes you can do that for a moment, you should get a lot of oil so have someone start vehicle while you check! Take it from there and good luck!
