Question Tap, Tap, Tap

This is the sound my engine was making yesterday when i fired it up in the driveway to winterize. I was warming up the engine to drain the oil, when the engine was tapping. To me it sounded like a lifter, but I couldn't tell where it was coming from (not even which bank). I ran the engine off the garden hose and it was around 65 degrees. The engine never made it up to 160 degrees. Is it possible the engine was so cold that the lifters were making this sound. Not sure if all the lifters were making this sound but like I said I couldn't tell where it was coming from.

My 98 pickup does this, I figure after 220,000 original miles I wouldn't want to get up in the morning either but it runs great!

My 99 chevy did it too. Had it for 9 years and 95000 miles and never had issues...not sure if this is what you're hearing.

Could also possibly be an exhaust leak. I had a small leak between my manifold and riser on one side that was producing a tapping sound just like you describe. I just replaced my manifolds and risers and the tapping sound is gone.
