Adjusting 1.6 Rolling tip Rocker Arms?

I have a 1965 Ford Mustang with a rebuilt engine with about 5,000 miles. On the right side of the engine the Rocker Arms are ticking pretty loud. I need some help how to adjust the rocker arms. The Rocker Arms are 1.6 rolling tip rocker Arms....thanks

what sort of cam?
solid lifters need some clearance, but hydralics run with no lash

If these are bolt down (ONLY a hex head showing) rockers, they are hydraulic, torque them to 20-25ft/lbs on the bottom of the lobe.

I really can't see installing a solid cam with only roller tip rocker arms. Normally it's done with full roller rockers.

Do some research, but I don't think solid lifters squirt oil out the push rod like a hydraulic lifter does, hence the term solid lifter. I would then turn to Comp Cams or Crane Cams for instructions of how to set your rocker arms, hydraulic or solid.
