that sounds nothing like rod knock. small rod bearing is a very loud distinctive tapping. big end bearing is a loud knocking noise. i have no idea what is making that noise.

Yea prolly ... Lord knows what. Itll get worse or not. My other noise sounds like its progressing towards exhaust leak... But damned if i can find one

Do have to caveat that most of my adult life was spent doing very "jonseyesque" work... But it was all ear, no computer to "wash it through". I was quite expert at picking out what i wanted to hear under the din of static. I may be hearing the noise and focusing on it.. Like i trained myself to do.
