Another boring tick thread

I have lifter tick for sure, but after she heats up ('98 manual), there is still about a 6hz tick at idle. Listened to the engine with a stethoscope and it seems to be coming from the bell housing.

Thoughts?

Cracked flexplate?
It happens.
Take at look and make sure the flex platebolts are tight, while you are at it.
