Hydraulic lifter bleed down. Bad Hydraulic Lifters

352ci Ford in my 1966 F-100 shortbed. Just finished installing a new cam and lifters. Even needed new pushrods to get the preload correct. After all that, when the engine would warm up I'd get a pretty serious tick coming from one or two suspect lifters. Here's what I found in my diagnosis. I said Crane lifters in the video but I meant Comp Cams. It has a comp XE254 cam and matching lifters. After this diagnosis I replaced the lifters with some Parts store Sealed Power units and it's been fine ever since.
