Exclamation 96 cobra engine ticking please help!!!!

I have recently done an engine swap on my 96 cobra. When I first started the engine it ran great with no noises but a ticking noise started. The ticking is only at idle and goes away around 1200 rpm. When the engine warms up it goes away completely. I'm thinking its the lash adjusters but I'm not sure. Looking for ideas.

Try thicker oil. If you are using mobil one I have heard that it causes ticking in 4v motors but have no first hand knowledge.

try to isolate the noise so you are sure its not injector pulses vs a knock or the heads

Thanks its at inspection right now ill have them change the oil. Its running Quaker State 10W-30 right now. We have pretty much determined its coming from the head so I will see if that helps.

sometimes the timing chains have issues with the little tension adjusters not sure it makes a tick.
