Default Rattle in motor

I have a rattle in upper engine. Sounds like possibly a rocker arm. Started as a tick and now seems worse everyday. Oil pressure is fine and oil level. Just unsure where it is coming from. Kinda sounds like the front of the motor in the center. Waitin for something to give.

Get a stethoscope and see if you can pinpoint which side it's coming from, then pull that valve cover for a look. If you wait for something to break, you may be surprised at how much it takes with it.
