Unhappy Just a light tap

Just replaced my glow plugs and now I am getting a slight tapping sound coming from the left side under the valve cover Not too sure what it might be, it only does it when its in park at an idle. Any ideas please don't really wanna take it to the dealer. My first diesel so I am new to the whole thing.
