are you sure it is from the bottom end. Not sure of your year but the overhead cam shaft drive gear is split and has to be preloaded when putting the cam chain back on. Hopefully that is what you might be hearing if the gear wasn't set right

Usually when you hear a knock on the bottom end you've spun a bearing. Never the less it's a serious thing. Most people would replace the whole motor, You could get it overhauled too. If it's a tick though, It's a less serious thing.
