I'm not sure how you would describe the ticking...

...but perhaps you loosened up the grime around a well-worn belt tensioner shock bushing that is now announcing itself? Usually in that case, the ticking goes away when the motor is revved up. More wear, and the ticking becomes a clanking!

The shock bushing (and associated tensioner) resides just below the radiator hose and in front of the coolant pump...
