i have oil presure but lifters still tick

Does the lifter quiet down after a few seconds?.....First and easiest is to try some Seafoam in the engine oil. This will possibly clean up the lifters and get them pumped up again. When doing this use the thinnest oil allowed by the engine specs. This helps flush out debris in engine.
