Sounds like a relay-the only thing that will sound like a relay at that side of the engine is the Front Flasher to the right rear of the engine compartment, my problem is my references don't give the exact location-Sorry- 15secs of the clicking will enable you to locate it with a helper-when you find it take a picture of it and comeback

Could be a piston slap-try putting a tsp of oil in the loudest cylinder and see if it lessen the knocking noise/could also be the wrist pin
