Looks like Ford Europe figured out where the noise was exactly coming from... #8 cap on the front bank.

...memory test here as I have some of the earler Ford docs on this issue.later engines had the waterpump drive off the intake cam. Some also did not have a belt tensioner but an 'elastic' type belt which was also,at one time,thought to be the cayuse of the tick Re angle of tension on the cam bearings etc..
