Thermostat is not functioning properly, Coolant Level is Low, Oil needs to be changed....has this engine cooked in a past life and has the water jacket buggered up with rust? are you runnin with water instead of coolant? that'd ironize it up plenty.

the ticking may be detonation from hot carbon a piston destroyer, ever look at catalytic when doing this may be red hot ,partial plugged with carbon also

Hmmmm, electric fan isn't comin' on (if you've got one)~
