Alright.. more cleaning up little bits. Replaced exhaust manifold gaskets, 6 new studs, and 8 copper crush nuts. No more ticking sound. Found the proper battery hold down instead of a bunjee cord, removed the hot wired manual switch for the radiator fan, and wired it in correctly so it'll turn on and off via temp switch now, pulled the wiring for the fog lights (bumber with fogs will we changed out tomorrow). Already a little less cluttered!
