As the engine warms up valve clearance will tighten up a cold engine will make more noise. When you restarted was it the same kind of noise just louder? A long screwdriver held in different places can help track down the area topend or bottom.If you end up taking the head turn upsidedown valveheads up fill combustion chambers with oil than blow compressed air in intake/exhaust ports a little bubbles are ok you are looking for somthing inconsistent my most likely exhaust side.Overheating is hard on valve springs have them check if you find burnt/leaking valves.
