Ticking can come from so many places I could write all day... Use a screwdriver or a long extension as a stethoscope and try to isolate the source. Best guess I can make without seeing/hearing it is either you cracked an exhaust manifold or a valve lifter is sticking (only a guess) If it's a lifter, you can add a quart of marvel oil and usually it will quiet down.

If oil is on the spark plug tip then it could be from worn valve stems or from worn piston rings. When you accelerate away from the traffic lights and the engine blows a lot of greyish smoke then this is a sign of worn parts.
If the oil is leaking into the spark plug hole, then it could be leaking from the tappet cover, either the tappet cover bolts are loose or the tappet cover gasket is faulty.
