Wow, this is baffling! If it were a out-of-spec valve lash adjustment, the tick would get louder when the engine warms up since lash grows with temperature. It does sound like you isolated the area, that's the good news. What's that leave? Bad valve, valve guide, busted inner or outer valve spring.....I still lean towards a pin hole leak on the exhaust, but that's just me.
