What makes you think Ford uses break-in oil and should be changed at 1600 miles?
What I ment was I wanted to change out the oil from the manufacture a little earlier than normal to get out the fine particules. :thumb: Not that ford uses a specific break-in oil. Sorry if I wasn't clear in my post.:doh:

Maybe you put too much oil in.
I hear they are changing out motors because of this problem. Then the new motor does it too.

Check it again and maybe take some out. It's not a problem that should need fixing. Just a noise you can hear because the truck is so quiet. Turn up the radio and drive the sh!t out of it.

Curious, SoCal, is yours a Huntsville or Indy motor? Trying to see if it pertains to one factory or both.

Have you tried the "add 14 quarts" at oil change to see if it changes? Some have claimed that an overfull crankcase was the cause of the tick, the extra oil was being aerated by the crank and the air didn't agree with the lifters. Just heard it as a theory, but it may help.

Keep us posted. Tim
