Default 289 with lifter chatter leaving me scratching my head

Whats up guys im working on my 66 289 mustang and I have some ticking coming from the driver side of my engine, worried it might be a bent push rod or something so I popped off the valve cover and started looking at all my push rods none are bent cracked or so on, so I put everything back except the valve cover to see if I could adjust my rockersand I finally figured out I had a loose rocker making the noise so I tighted it up and tada no noise.......for about 10 seconds then it started agian soI ttighted more and again no noise for about 10 seconds and again it started I knew I had over tighted my rocker so I backed the nut off and it stopped but of course started again not bad but irritating as heck, its passing oil but in squirts not a free flow like my other rockers are this one the oil comes out in spirts regular inertvals though but most of my other valves have a pretty consistent flowfrom the push rod side

So anyone have any ideas how to fix this? Not really sure where to start

Anyone else have an issue like this?

try moving it to another location to see if it does the same and see if the new rocker does. then you know if you need a new one. or you need a new push rod.

could be a lifter eating a lobe. how does the oil look? run it for a few minutes, cut it off, pull the dipstick and look at it in the sunlight.
