I'm not to familiar with the cam chain tensioner, However any thing that's loose will make moore noise when cold before heat expansion, Now the valves will tick when cold, That's normal. They should quiet down once the engine warms up.To get a good listen of the valves, Take a long screw driver put the metal end on the engine under the cams, Now put your ear to the handle. Do this when its cold & again when hot. Move it around & do it on both sides, This way you can get to know whats normal & whats not.
