My 84 hilux also has a ticking noise. i immediately checked the exhaust manifold gasket. it is blown. look around and under manifold with flashlight and mirror, if it looks bad start engine and immediately feel all around for hot air leak. engine will get hot in about one minute. i ordered a gasket for 20 dollars. should be very easy to replace.

You should replace it as an assembly whichh includes all hte tensioners and the chain guide ans some seals you can get it as a set aprox cost on the parts will run around 280 and labor around 4.5 hours to do hte job.

It sounds like a gearbox problem,
so it'll have to go into the shop as it's a specialist mechanic's job.
