    hello. my california stone, hydro but had the mod. been standing for a few months, changed oil and filter , it makes a loud ticking noise like a loose tappet on idle, ok when you rev it.taken it for a couple off miles but still the same, ticking on idle. does it take time for the hydrolic followers to fill up.

    A hydraulic lifter may have failed. Pop the valve covers and see if there is clearance at TDC on the compression stroke. The rocker that can be moved is the failed lifter. They can easily be replaced from above and shouldn't require a tear down.
