ticking sound

Hey guys,

My 68 gto is making a slight ticking sound at idle and when open throttle. I have full length headers and just replaced the camshaft 2 weeks ago. This just started today and I have put 100 miles since new camshaft. It sounds like the ticking is coming from the driver side valve cover. Any ideas?

Could also be a header leak. Check and re-torque the header bolts before you burn out a gasket ( if it is a leak)
