196cc engine valve clicking?

i have a 196cc GX200 Honda clone and the exhaust valve/pushrod/rocker is making a clicking noise. The valve opens and closes but it clicks after the intake closes after the compression stroke. What could be causing this

As an outdated mechanic, I would need to know if the lifters were solid or hydraulic. If they are solid, there is an adjustment. If they are hydraulic, a lifter could be collapsed.

Compression release mechanism.
