Hi your ford Bantam clutch slave cylinder fix will require the removal of the transmission , this is a concentric unit incorporated in the release bearing assembly and can only be replaced as a complete unit . if you only have a fluid leak at the connection entering the gearbox you might get a kit at your local dealership, this is for the Rocam Motor driven Bantam

A ticking noise in the cylinder head area is usually associated with the camshaft/followers, which may be worn.
Here's a couple if images: The lobe of the camshaft wears - becomes 'rounded'
The cam follower - what the camshaft pushes against to open and close the valves - can become worn.. 'dished' at the top.
It is unlikely you will have to change any valves, unless of course there is wear/damage.
The reason why the tick noise disappears when you are driving is because oil is getting pumped up to the camshaft area, between the cam lobe and the follower and acting as a 'cushion'.
A vehicle that has hydraulic lifters.. they control valve clearances by using oil. Like conventional cam followers, they can wear.
Changing your oil won't cure any wear. You could try using a valve train additive to try and quieten things down.
