New lifters ticking

I had 2 ground down lobes and lifters, so i replaced the cam and lifters in my 76 cj5 258. after i got done replacing them i ran the jeep for 10-15 minutes at about 1500 rpm and the lifters were ticking real bad, i reved it up for a little bit and still was ticking. it sounds like their not pumping up. i didnt pre prime the lifters. i ran it a little more and they are still goin at it. how long should it take for them to pump up? i lubed everything with lucas assembly lube, and used an stp oil treatment with a zinc additive in the new oil. i have good oil pressure and everything, i dont know whats wrong with it. any ideas?
