Matt could be right. He usually is. But it seems to me  that  if you turn 
off your warm engine with the valve clicking, the next  cold start would also 
have the valve clicking until they fill with  oil.
I wonder if possibly you are mis-adjusting them?

What does it mean when the valves click on my 65 Monza when  warm but not 
cold? I've adjusted t hem to no avail while the motor was running  and warm.. 
No noise when she starts up but after 4 minutes its clickety  clack


Most  likely low oil pressure.... below 7 psi....  Put a cheap mechanical  
gauge   where the oil snap switch is and check  it..
