If the pushrod is under adjusted then the cable has to be over adjusted to compensate which advances the 'at rest' position of the lifter arm (and looks as if it is in the photo) the balls, therefore, are already partially climbing the ramps before the lifter mechanism begins to operate so the balls reach the ends of the ramps probably causing them to jump back or skid before the lifter arm stops rotating and I believe that is what causes the clicking sound.
