Just rebuilt my 4.2

I just got done rebuilding my 4.2L and now there's a noise in the front almost like a tapping but it does sound like it's internal. Does anyone know what that might be without listening to it?

Could be a lifter, get a mechanics stethoscope and put it to each one on the valve cover till you hear one that's making alot of noise. Easy to check and to fix.
