Question Ticking Noise From 3.0 v6

I have a 93 with a 3.0 V6, with a nasty ticking noise, At first I thought it was my manifold because it is missing a bolt, but It doesn't sound like the muffled ticking that a manifold would make. it is always there, and gets louder when you step on the gas, the noise is coming from the drivers side valve cover manifold area anyone have an idea of what it could be? On a side note the truck has no balls could that tie into it?
