Your best bet is to track down where the sound comes from. A video or recording might help. Sounds like some part is loose, perhaps just hanging on to hoses and wiring. Or perhaps something was dropped in the tank?

Does the noise come from the left side or does it just appear when tilted to the left? Does the clanking rate vary with engine RPM? Off-hand it could be the water pump, generator, fuel pump, or fan. But there's lots of other possibilities. Hopefully it's not further inside the engine.

Found the issue in case anyone’s still wondering one of the transmission gears was bent I’m thinking it happened when my chain came off the sprocket and broke my water pump witch was the reason for changing it

"one of the transmission gears was bent "
So a gear inside the crankcase was bent on its axis? I could believe a bent sprocket but a bent gear is hard to believe. Which gear was it and was it on the counter shaft or drive shaft? I would be concerned about other damage, including other internal parts as well as the crankcase.

"my chain came off the sprocket and broke my water pump "
Time to start paying attention to the chain tension and probably also to greasing the chain.
