Well I replaced the Camshaft Oil Seal.
Got everything put back together "properly"... All the belts tightened, air box back on... I go to fire it up, and it fires RIGHT up!

But now it ticks louder than before... Not thunks, but just tick tick tick tick... What could this mean?

Yeah, I checked that!
But it does sound like a tick when it is time to do an oil change.

After some kinds of engine work the motor will tick until it runs for a while. I'm not sure if this is one of those situations but you might try driving it for half an hour and see if the ticking stops.

Exactly what it was.
