We don't know the service was done incorrectly or failed to find an issue. Was it sent with a description of the noise, or was it simply sent for a bearing change?

Not running about the only thing that should make noise is the lifters on the cam. That noise will be pretty mild, just a click as you turn the crank over. If you rock the prop back and forth lightly you should feel just a bit of slop before the piston is moving in the cylinder. If there is a significant amount of slop, there could be a worn rod. I suppose a piston could be worn to the point it rattles, but this would be obvious when it was taken apart.

Glow engines that I purchase used always need bearing replacement.
