Default tapping noise from valve.

Hello, Irecently purchased (4 months) a 95gt andI can't find where this has been discussed before, but my right head has developed an annoying tapping noise. It sounds like something is stuck in the valve train but it runs just fine. I've been a tech at an Acura dealer for 11yrs,so I'm fresh fish when it comes to 5.0's Any suggestions?

I'm possitive it is not an exhaust leak, but a stuck lifter sounds about right. What is the best way to fix this?
