i think you should take the head off, check it out, burn the midnight oil and rebuild it in your room if needed since you need it running ASAP, and replace the head gasket while your at it.

Well, it could be bad, and it could be not so bad.

Is it a knocking noise, or does it sound like a marble in a tin can?

If it's a marble in a tin can sound, head to ******** forums (don't know if there's a writeup here, but why do the work twice?) and hit the search button, and look for posts by vancouverbc . one of the top 5 hits should be titled 'Tutorials'. hit that, and search the page for timing . There should be a link there called 'Timing Chain Rattle'. It's a fairly easy and straight forward process.

If you can't fix the tensioner with WD-40, has them. got mine for $66 shipped.

without actually hearing it all we can do is guess. dose it do it all the time and is it louder and more frequent as the revolutions go up?
