quick check is to see if your cam chain is stretched. pull the tensioner, with the arm extended all the way out try installing it into the cylinder. it should not fit flush. if it does, it needs replaced. that can cause a bad tick.

other then that, pull the valve cover and have a look. that'll pretty much give you any other indication.

my guess would be you overheated the engine ruining the rockers, along with possibly cam and cam journals.
