Need Help Quick!

I adjusted my valves, i did the actual adjustment then checked the lash, then after that, torqued them down to 14ft/pds, and checked the lash to make sure it didnt move, none of which did. All the intake valves were set to about .008, and the reason say "about" .008 is because the feeler gauge fit through a little easier on some, so the size may differ.
After id thought id adjusted all valves to the correct settings i put the valve cover back on, and started to tighten the valve cover screws to 8.7ft/lbs. At that point i tried to tighten the top row middle screw and it would do nothing but turn and wouldnt tighten. After that i tried to loosen it, and that also didnt work. So, after a LOT of frustration, i thought id just finish putting the valve cover on and see if it leaked oil, which it did not but after i started it i became aware that the engine was ticking more than before.
So all in all, i have two questions. Where could i have gone wrong in the actual adjustments, and what happened to my valve cover screw? could it be stripped?
