There should be a cap that screws off of one of the two valve covers that you can add oil to the engine through.

What type of power steering fluid & capacity for 1985 ford e350?

On yours, you can use atf but power "steering fluid" works just as well.. steering fluid is used as a specific requirement on later vehicles and if you use it in the 85, you can use the leftover to top off anything you have that is newer. (can't do that with atf)

"1997 e250 oil gauge flickering and oil light comes on and off Now the engne has a ticking sound"

You are losing oil pressure! Don't run the engine without the proper repairs!!
Check the oil level, if it's in the safe range, then it's possible that the oil pump is not working(this is a major deal, and could be a sign of other problems...if there's something plugging up the screen on the pickup tube, it could mean that something's coming apart inside the motor. I would drain the oil, and run it through a strainer to check for metal or plastic particles in the oil that could be from pistons, rings, timing gears... but dont' continue to run your engine without the proper oil pressure! the guage flickering means that it's dropping to unsafe pressure! a solid light means you've lost oil pressure.

... If there's no oil on the dipstick, add oil 1 quart.. and then recheck... add more as needed, but don't overfill.
