Hello. My name is Tan.
How old are these engines? How many hours do you have on the engine?
Engine noises can be hard to identify. Now a ticking sound can be many different things from and exhaust leak to a bad rod bearing. Can you do a video of the sound from different points on the engine?
The first thing I would do is a compression test to eliminate a possible cylinder or valve issue.
