ENGINE NOISE

1989 Toyota 4Runner • 6 cylinder 4WD Automatic • 115,000 miles

After I replaced blown head gaskets the engine is now knocks. Sounds to light to be a rod or main bearing, Could it be a damaged piston or wrist pin from the piston trying to compress the water?
Thank you for youe time and GOD bless you in JESUS name.

Thank you for your help. This is between a ticking/ tapping noise that will become less when the engine is warm.
Thanx
