I don't think I have any detonation either. If I remember correctly, my quench is right about 40 thou, and I think they are Sealed Power 677P pistons with a 17.5cc dish.

Looking through my old notes, I am pretty sure these are the valve springs I am running...

These should be the lifters that I am running.

Well we can't say what the reason really was there are a lot of things that could have happen and with out pulling it a part we can't tell you for sure what it is making the noise

Chad also said:
In the past I have been very happy with the equivalent of a 30 cc dish between milling the reliefs and decking the block ... My guess Is you have too loose tolerance on the installed height... Or you have a spring or two that has failed ...

By a spring failing, does that mean it is broken? Or it's just lost some of its 'spring'? When the motor was off, I was touching each of the rocker arms and could feel the ones that were making the noise, I had 3 of them that I could feel move when I heard the tick, the other ones didn't budge. Maybe its worth replacing those 3 springs to see what it gets me.

Sounds like the expansion & contraction of the exhaust when you shut it down. The loose rockers may not have the cam lobes trying to open them.

Could be broken or loss of tension... If you find it has lost tension ... Double check coil bind numbers and make sure it is able to deal with the rocker arm ratio and cam you are running...

I'm getting another set of valve springs to try from a guy at work, along with the compressor to remove them with the head on the vehicle. Until then, I've moved on to other projects. Thanks for the help. I'll check back in when I get the new parts.

Well, I finally got around to swapping out the valve springs. The noise is gone. However, in the process I determined that my lifters are shot, they bleed down almost instantly when the motor is shut off. I guess I'll be putting in some lifters in the future.
