First thing you should do if you haven't already is check everything over thoroughly and make sure it's a rod knock and not something else like a loose flywheel or something worn out in the driveline or anything.
If it is a rod knock, well you can pay a little now or a lot later. If you pull it apart now you might not even need to bore it or turn the crank. Just slap a new rod and a set of rings in and go. But if you keep running it and the rod lets go it could wipe out everything. Smash the block, cam, and crank. Not pretty.
If I were you I'd bite the bullet and tear it down. Shouldn't take more than a day to get it out and apart and the good news is when you're all done you'll have an engine you know you can depend on.
