Alfa 156

Ticking engine again

I've searched this forum and haven't found a solution, so gonna post my problem here.

Have a ticking coming from my 1.6 ts 156 since I bought the car 6 months ago.

Since then the timing belt has gone.
So I've replaced the belt, tensioners, the water pump and the variator.
I've also replaced the thermostat.

Most of the suggestions in the forum suggest the variator, but it can't be that since I've just replaced it.

Here's my question:
1. Could it be a problem with the other belt/tensioner?
2. Could it be the tappets? (I don't even know what they are?!)
3. If if is, how critical is it to resolve (I've already spend 1400 euro in repairs this year!)
