The idle part is easy. just adjust the little screw next to the throttle body when the motor is warmed up. As for the ticking change the oil and see if the ticking goes away or add some motor addive that quiets motor noise. if not, it might be a valve.

do you think it worth picking up though the front seat is riped body is starting to rust 188k miles blowing smoke ( maybe from siting ) but the good is a new tranny and clutch come with a nother tranny (good) soild as a rock though 400 bucks what he wants

Make sure it's full of oil and drive it... the tick should go away.

$400 is fair... I paid $100 for the 86 GTI I had, but it didn't run. I did a timing belt and sold it for $650.
