Default Ticking from Driver Side Valve Cover

My engine has had a ticking sound plaguing it for about 9 months. I have tried using Risoline, gumout, and Seafoam, but none have seemed to change much.. although the Seafoam did improve it for a short time. The ticking will increase as I accelerate, but is steady otherwise. If I remove the valve cover, how do I determine where the ticking is coming from? I was thinking about removing/cleaning the rocker arms and push rods, but I have never done this before, so not sure if it will fix the problem. I saw a video on youtube where a guy sprayed carb cleaner down the tube the pushrods go in, he said it would quiet the lifters, but it's youtube, so it could be terrible advice. Can anyone offer any input? I have never had to take apart the engine like this before, so it feels daunting.
