Default 5.0 ticking sound

I have a 95 with a 5.0 and since I bought it I have changed the oil along with spark plugs, and the filters and then the motor starting ticking. it does it most noticably when the clutch is engaged or in neutral and slowing down but not really too loud when idleing I have done the seafoam motor treatment, and it is running better but still ticking. Any suggestions?

A bad wrist pin will sound like a double knock.
Try listening to each cylinder bank to localize the ticking sound. If you suspect a spark plug wire is bad or not properly connected, remove the under-hood light bulb and check for electrical arcing after dark to see if any sparks are visible at the spark plugs or the s/p boots.
