lower bottom right of the engine?

that would be the gearcase.

a loud rattle from the gearcase would be caused by a bad cam bearing or a bad lifter roller. regardless, you won't know unless you open the grearcase. to do that, you'll need to remove the rocker covers and push rods.

let me know if you need more help.
