are you sure its not comming from the back of the engine on the drivers side up top? The 7.3's can do what they call cackle. It sounds like a rod knock, but its actually the injector making noise.

It might be time for a new one if its never been replaced before.

Common problem. Dual clutch fins wearing into the cover, gets too much clearance and then the knocking noise.You can replace the tc but at 200000, I'd just do the whole trans.
