Check your ignition timing. Also check for vacuum leaks. If the rattle is pre-ignition, it could be very bad for your engine in the long term. Pre-ignition could be caused by the timing being overly advanced, or the fuel mixture being very lean, or other less-likely causes.

Check the valve lash. A rattle could be loose valve gaps.
