I noticed a ticking sound coming from the passenger side of my engine (v8 350). It just started the other day and it sounds like it is coming from the exhaust headers. Would a leak in the gasket cause this to happen?

Absolutely. Exhaust leaks at the ports or the donut flange tend to be high frequency. You might be sure there isn't a valve tapping. Use the old screwdriver trick at the ear and place the tip on the vavle covers.

Could be that the lifter is not pumping up with oil due to a collasped lifter. I had an engine that would tap if the oil was not dead on full.
