6.4 tapping noise

After the 1st PM the 2008 6.4 started a tapping noise. The truck only has 5k. Ford said the sound is normal. It is a irregular tapping and only after the 6.4 powerstroke is warmed up. Any body have any ideas at all.

There have been several threads started about this noise, usually right after an oil change. Matt at Spartan gave an explanation for it. Might want to do a thread search. I believe the title was................. ticking noise..
