1992 325i engine ticking

i recenty bought a 1992 325i with 225,000 klm's on it. i did an oil change and used 20/50 oil. i now hear a real ticking sound from the engine when it is cold or hot. Any suggestions ? i'm a transmission tech by trade.

It may be a valve tick, also I'd have a check of the timing chain tensioner if so equipped.

Maybe a check of service manuals can tell you if the valves need adjusting.
