The noise could be a stuck valve or broken valve spring. (Or a number of other issues, including, but not limited to: a loose motor mount, dented oil pan or clutch cover, heavy carbon deposits, an issue with the clutch pressure plate, crankshaft rod or main bearing issues, cracked piston, flat cam, and more)
That engine may already be equipped with insert bearings, and an in-chassis overhaul may be possible if the crankshaft is within spec. If the engine is currently in running condition, having an experienced mechanic observe the engine while it's running could give a much clearer picture of its condition and prognosis.
