I admit, reading all this back, it does sound like all of the tappets are slightly out. When you have a low level of oil in your engine, this will cause the components of the valvetrain to cause ticking sounds because the components are not being lubricated enough.
Google seems to think they need doing when the engine is hot. However, one service the ticking stayed and I eventually narrowed it down to the hydraulic tappets.
A ticking sound could be caused by any number of reasons, such as a low level of oil or loose components. After all sixteen were removed, cleaned in paraffin and refitted, the ticking stopped for a few years.
