Sounds like an exhaust leak.

What cylinder heads? Truck headers will normally leak (of course there are exceptions) on the Pre 67 cylinder head exhaust ports.

Only need to pull the valve covers to check for a bent pushrod.

Have someone stick their foot over the exhaust pipe and the exhaust ticking will get louder if indeed there is a leak.
