I think you'll find that there is no adjustment. Nowadays, most if not all zero lash hydraulic lifter motors don't have any adjustment as it's really not needed.
If a hydraulic lifter ticks, no amount of adjustment will stop it.
As a quick fix, you could try dumping the oil and filter and re-fitting with Penrite oil. It has a good detergent in it and has solved this exact problem for me and my nephew on a few engines now.
We swear by the stuff as a result.
The other way, if the tick is consistent hot or cold, is to remove the rocker cover, run the engine and push each rocker sideways a bit, one at a time.
When you hit the noisy one you will hear a subtle but noticable shift in the sound of the tick. You'll then know which one to replace.
keep all the rockers and lifters in order, so they go back where they came from.
