Did you rotate the motor a few times by hand and recheck the clearances ? Not trying to be captain obvious but if you just did a valve adjustment and you have ticking that sounds like a valve , I would go back to the valves and remeasure before you cause unnecessary wear and tear

I didn't do the adjustment. The dealer did.
