My 1989 560SEL ticking was a few worn rocker arms. This is evident only when you remove them, and you will see the worn area, where the camshaft rides. I replaced the rocker arms, changed the oil tubes and no noise! You will need the special tool to remove the rocker arms though. And, you get to pull some fuel injection supply hoses on the driver's side, to get the valve cover off. Buy some rocker arms, the oil tube kit, (1 per side), and set aside a saturday morning. You will want to look at the timing chain guides while you are poking around in there, and clean the valve covers if they need it. (Mine were nice and clean!)

Have fun!
